Landon Turrubiarte Named Principal of Blanton Elementary School
Landon Turrubiarte, assistant principal of Blanton Elementary School, has been named the school’s new principal beginning the 2022-2023 school year replacing Linda Bozeman, who has announced her retirement at the end of this school year.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue learning with our staff and students at Blanton Elementary,” said Mr. Turrubiarte. “Blanton holds a special place in my heart. We have tremendous community support here and the involvement of our families makes this a unique place each and every day.”
In 2009, Mr. Turrubiarte joined Denton ISD serving as a seventh-grade math teacher at Navo Middle School. In 2011, he moved to Strickland Middle School where he taught math at all grade levels. In 2014, he became an administrative intern at Strickland. He joined the Blanton Elementary staff a year later as an assistant principal, a role he’s held for the past seven years.
“We are delighted to have Mr. Turrubiarte serve as the principal at Blanton Elementary,” said Ms. Charlene Parham, area superintendent of academic programs for the Guyer Zone. “He is an exceptional leader who has a strong passion for student and staff success. His proven leadership and wealth of instructional knowledge will make an immediate impact within our community.”
Mr. Turrubiarte earned his bachelor’s degree from Dallas Baptist University and his master’s degree in educational leadership from Texas Woman’s University. He and his wife Brenda, a math teacher at Strickland Middle School, reside in Denton and are raising four children in the district.
