Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It’s a great time to be a Roadrunner!
I am so honored to be a member of the Rummel Creek Elementary family. This will be my 4th year as principal of Rummel Creek, and my 14th year as an administrator. I grew up in Southern Oregon, and earned both my Bachelor and Master’s degrees from Southern Oregon University. I then moved to Los Angeles, California, where I spent 16 years working in public schools at the elementary, middle, and high school levels serving as a teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, principal, and assistant superintendent.
In 2015 I earned my Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership from California State University, Northridge. In the summer of 2017 my family made the move from California to Texas. In the summer of 2020 we made the move from the Austin area to Houston.
My amazing husband Spencer, is a high school math teacher and baseball coach. We have two incredible daughters, 7-year-old Brooklyn, and 5-year-old Finley. I could not be happier to be a part of the SBISD team and work alongside the wonderful Rummel Creek staff and families.
The majority of my time is spent in classrooms supporting the growth and development of our students alongside our world-class teachers, but I am always happy to meet with parents to discuss how we can best support your precious children.
Dr. Laura Sloan, Principal
