Montgomery Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison has named Montgomery Elementary School Principal Carrie Fitzpatrick as the district’s new Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education.
In her new position, Fitzpatrick will join the superintendent’s Senior Leadership Team and support the district’s six elementary campuses while growing, mentoring and monitoring campus leadership by focusing on improving student outcomes and school performance and enhancing the educational experience and learning environments across the district.
“Carrie is an extraordinarily talented and transformative leader in our district,” Morrison said. “I am thrilled to welcome her to this important role and excited to see the amazing impact her leadership and high standard of excellence will have on student achievement across Montgomery ISD.”
Fitzpatrick holds 23 years of experience in public education, having served as Principal of Montgomery Elementary School for the previous four years. Before joining Montgomery ISD, she spent 13 years as a principal in the Conroe Independent School District. Fitzpatrick began her career in education as a teacher in 1998.
“It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the Montgomery Elementary School Community as their principal,” Fitzpatrick said. “I will dearly miss my Bearcat family, but I could not be more excited for the incredible opportunity to continue serving Montgomery ISD in this leadership role.”
Fitzpatrick will assume the role of Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education from Wendy Graves, who is retiring from the district in August. Graves served a total of 30 years in Montgomery ISD, where she spent the previous 10 years as the district’s Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education and 10 years as principal of Montgomery Elementary School. Fitzpatrick will begin her new role following the end of the current school year.
Fitzpatrick holds a Bachelor of Science in Academic Studies and Master of Education Administration from Sam Houston State University.
Montgomery ISD will immediately begin a broad search process to identify the next Montgomery Elementary School Principal.
