Principal's Message

Christine Perez

Welcome Back, Poe Tigers!

I hope that you’ve had a restful and rejuvenating summer. My name is Christine Perez and it’s my privilege to serve as the Principal of Edgar Allen Poe Middle School. During my time in public education I’ve served as a Special Education teacher, Department Coordinator of Special Education, Coordinator of School Improvement, and Administrator. I completed my undergraduate studies at UTSA with a Bachelor of Arts in English and am a proud Roadrunner alumna. I attended Schreiner University for my graduate studies earning a Master’s Degree of Education in Teaching. I’m a proud native Texan and very fortunate to have lived and experienced growing up in several different parts of the United States and Panama. I grew up the daughter of an Army father and am thankful for the sacrifice our men and women make who serve in the Armed Forces.

I am a firm believer in the power of positive attitudes. Positive attitudes yield transformational results in any area of a person's life where change is needed or wanted. As an educator, my positive attitude sets the tone and expectation for teaching and student learning. You will frequently hear me refer to the acronym P.A.C.E. (Positive Attitudes Change Everything), as it reflects my personal view of the power and impact of positivity for adults and students, alike. I believe each student, parent, educator, and community partner brings a leadership skill set which we can all learn from to make momentous positive change occur at a rapid rate.

Our Poe Middle School educator community comprised of teachers, paraprofessionals, clerical staff, child nutrition crew, custodial team, and administrative members are dedicated to helping students reach their full “Poe”tential through effective and engaging teaching practices. I’m confident that through strong school, family, and community partnerships, students will reach exceptional levels of academic, social, and emotional achievement while becoming college and career ready in a 21st century society.

This will be Poe Middle School’s best year yet and I look forward to meeting and developing relationships with our students, parents, community partners, and educators. Please feel free to contact me at or stop by to introduce yourself.

Keep setting the P.A.C.E.!
