Irving, Texas. August 5, 2014

Toscha Reeves, who has served as principal at Irving's John Haley Elementary School since 2011, has been selected to lead Austin Middle School as its new principal.

"Ms. Reeves is an experienced educator who has both taught and served as an administrator at the middle school level in Irving ISD. She is truly returning home to her 'love' for the middle school students and environment," says Superintendent of Schools Jose L. Parra, Ed.D.

Reeves was introduced to the Austin Middle School faculty at a special meeting this afternoon. She will begin transitioning to her new role now and will be in place to lead the campus when current Principal Julie Miller takes on her new role as principal of Brandenburg Elementary School.

In addition to her three years in the top leadership position at John Haley Elementary School, Reeves served as assistant principal at deZavala Middle School from 2008 to 2011. Prior to that, she was a librarian and media specialist throughout Irving ISD for six years. She began her career in Irving ISD in 1996 as an eighth grade reading teacher at Crockett Middle School.

"I am excited to return to middle school," says Reeves "I have high expectations for my students and staff. We will work together to support students so they can reach their full potential. I want to make certain all students improve performance so they are ready to compete in society and be the strong leaders of tomorrow."

According to Dr. Parra, "Ms. Reeves has described her goal as 'building confidence in the heart and competence in the mind of every child.' She is a focused, knowledgeable and committed leader who will commit herself to helping position students and staff to reach success."

Reeves earned her bachelor's degree from Dallas Baptist University and a master's degree in information studies from Texas Woman's University.
