Spring Branch ISD names new Hunters Creek Elementary principal

Robye Snyder has been named as the new principal at Hunters Creek Elementary School. She has 34 years in education including 24 years in Spring Branch ISD. From her perspective, Robye began her long career in education as a first-grade student in SBISD. She attended elementary, middle and high school in Spring Branch, graduating from Memorial High School.

Her enriching personal experiences in Spring Branch influenced her decision to become a teacher and a lifelong learner. After graduation from Texas A & M University, she began teaching third grade in Bryan ISD, moved to Katy ISD to teach first grade and, after being away for 12 years, returned to SBISD in 1987 as a reading specialist.

Since then, she has served in a variety of positions including classroom teacher, reading specialist, Reading Recovery teacher, assistant principal and principal at Ridgecrest, Cedar Brook and Meadow Wood elementary schools. Robye is an avid Aggie, holding a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Texas A&M. She has received additional certifications from the University of Houston, Houston Baptist University and St. Thomas University.

She is currently enrolled in Rice University's Educational Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) through the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business.

“I am most passionate about providing students and teachers challenging opportunities for learning and growth, academically and socially. My primary goals are to build strong relationships with the students, teachers, parents and community of Hunters Creek and to maintain their strong tradition of excellence,” she says.

Hunters Creek Elementary leadership, faculty and staff are committed to working together to assure that every student is well equipped with the academic and life skills to meet the district goal known as Spring Branch T-2-4. This goal calls for all of our students to successfully complete some form of higher education after graduation – a technical certification, two-year degree, or four-year degree. Outside of school, Robye enjoys spending time with her family, traveling and most recently learning to fly fish.

Whenever possible, she heads to the mountains for cool weather and outdoor fun. At Hunters Creek Elementary, Robye Snyder replaces Pamela Stout, who was interim school principal.
