In 2001, Principal Dominguez earned a bachelor of arts degree in elementary education from University of Texas in Austin. He later earned his master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Houston in 2007, and he’s currently pursuing a doctorate in educational administration advanced study, also through the University of Texas.
He taught for seven years at Mission West Elementary School in Fort Bend ISD, and then served for two years as dean of students at Alexander Hamilton Middle School from 2008-2010. For the past five years, he was principal at Macario Garcia Elementary School in Houston ISD. His family has moved to SBISD.
“Our mission here at Treasure Forest Elementary will be to educate our kindergarten through fifth-grade scholars for college through rigorous instruction, demanding work and a culture of excellence in all that we do,” Principal Dominguez said. “We will provide a world-class education to the families we serve here in Spring Branch ISD and, together, we will do whatever it takes to ensure that all Treasure Forest Elementary scholars realize their full potential.”
As a new principal, Principal Dominguez is committed to working together with Treasure Forest’s team to assure that every student is well equipped with the academic and life skills to meet the Spring Branch T-2-4 goal for its graduates.
The T-2-4 goal calls for graduates to successfully complete some form of higher or technical education, such as military training, technical certification, or a two-year or four-year college degree.
Principal Dominguez holds state certifications in Principal (Early Childhood through 12th Grade), Elementary Self-Contained (Grades 1-6) and Bilingual/English as a Second Language (Grades 1-6).
Principal Dominguez and his wife, Loren, a kindergarten teacher, recently bought a home in the Spring Shadows neighborhood. They’re the parents of two young boys, Ben and Sam, and their family has two dogs, Luna and Molly. Mr. Dominguez enjoys cooking big meals with his family and is a sports fan. He also is an avid duck hunter and loves to fish.
He replaces Blanca Reyes, who has been named director overseeing SBISD’s Childcare Program.
