SBISD Names New Wildcat Way School for Early Learning Director

Morella Tapia has been named as the new director at the Wildcat Way School for Early Learning. She has 14 years in Spring Branch ISD as an elementary teacher, intervention specialist and assistant principal. 

In 2001, Director Tapia earned her bachelor of arts in education from St. Thomas University in Houston. In 2006, she earned a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Houston.

In SBISD, she taught for five years at Shadow Oaks Elementary School, and then served for two years as an intervention specialist there. Since 2008, she’s been the assistant principal at Valley Oaks Elementary School.

“I’m thrilled to be appointed director at Wildcat Way School for Early Learning,” Director Tapia said. “I am excited about the opportunity to work with a team of committed prekindergarten educators and a staff passionate about doing whatever it takes to ensure that all our youngest students reach their top potential.”

As the new director, Director Tapia is committed to working together with her team to assure that every child is well equipped with the academic, social and life skills to meet Spring Branch’s T-2-4 goal for its high school 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.

Director Tapia holds state certifications in Assistant Principal (Prekindergarten through 12th Grade), Generic Special Education (Prekindergarten through 12th Grade), Self-Contained Elementary (Grades 1-8), and Bilingual/English as a Second Language(ESL)-Spanish (Prekindergarten through 12th Grade).

She replaces Tim Ashford, who has retired.
