Frenship ISD administration announced Dr. LeAnn Fisher Ed.D has been named the new principal Willow Bend Elementary. FISD Superintendent Dr. Michelle McCord made the announcement to the faculty and staff at Willow Bend on Friday afternoon.
Fisher is in her eleventh year of serving the students of FISD and is making a homecoming to Willow Bend, a campus she helped advance from 2006-2013. During that time, she taught 2nd grade and 4th grade and also served as the campus math interventionist for two years. She has been the assistant principal at North Ridge Elementary since January 2014.
“I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to return to Willow Bend Elementary,” said Fisher. “Willow Bend has always held a very special place in my heart and I am very excited to work alongside the amazing staff and be part of all the great things that are happening each and every day.”
Fisher received her Doctoral degree in Education Leadership from Lamar University earlier this month. She fills the role opened when Denise Stewart was named principal for the district’s new elementary campus scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. Both Stewart and Fisher assume their new roles in January.
