Director Lookadoo has 13 years of experience in public education in a variety of positions in Cypress Fairbanks ISD. He taught math and science for six years at Matzke Elementary, spent two years as an instructional specialist at Walker Elementary from 2008 until 2010, and was promoted to assistant principal at that district’s Alternative Learning Center-West. He served in that position for five years.
Mr. Lookadoo held several leadership positions in Cy-Fair, including team leader, lead mentor, AMIP summer coordinator, campus liaison and Site Based Management Committee member.
He earned his undergraduate degree in elementary education from Southern University in New Orleans, La., and then his master’s degree in educational administration from the Prairie View A&M University, based in the Texas town of the same name.
“It is an honor to serve as the next principal-director of the district's Disciplinary Alternative Education Program. I am excited about building a culture of success,” Mr. Lookadoo said. “I believe we can reach, teach and get our students back on their individual Path to Success by equipping them with the necessary skills needed to be productive citizens.”
Spring Branch ISD’s T-2-4 goal calls for all students to successfully complete military training, technical certification, or a two-year or four-year college degree after graduation.
Mr. Lookadoo holds state certifications in Principal (Early Childhood-12), Elementary Self-Contained (Grades 1-8), and English as a Second Language (Grades 1-8).
He replaces Michele Hilberth, who retired recently.
