I am Calandra Lewis, the proud principal of Mel Parmley Elementary where EVERY student is a STAR!
The 2017-2018 school year will begin my fifth year as principal at Parmley Elementary. I have been a part of the Parmley family since 2005 as a teacher and assistant principal. I taught first and third grades before becoming an administrator. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Teaching from Sam Houston State University(Go KATS!) and my Master of Education from Prairie View A&M University(Go Panthers!). My Texas Educator Certifications include 1-8 Generalist and EC-12 Principal.
I have been happily married for 26 years to my wonderful husband, John. We value our faith, family and education. We have two sons. My son, Joel, attends school, plays football and runs track at Willis High School(Go Wildkats!). My son, John III, attends school and runs track for the University of Houston(Go Coogs!).
I LOVE working with elementary school children and look forward to seeing their smiling faces each and every day!
