Ms. K. Gonzalez, Assistant Principal

Greetings to all at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. I can hardly believe I am beginning my fifth year as a member of the Epps Island family in the role of assistant principal. The past three years have flown by! Epps Island is a wonderful community with caring, enthusiastic, and hard-working teachers, students, and parents. I am proud to be a part of the family. We are all looking forward to an exciting year filled with new experiences and lots of student-centered learning. Here's just a little bit about me. I grew up in the Spring area and graduated from Spring High School. I then attended UT Austin (hook 'em horns) and taught in Austin for three years in bilingual classrooms. For 14 years I taught in Fairfax Co., VA in their partial Spanish Immersion program, teaching math, science, and health entirely in Spanish. My husband, Joselu, and I moved back to Klein in 2005. Our amazing daughter, Gabi, was born in 2006. I taught at Ehrhardt Elementary for a few years in general and bilingual classrooms and received my master’s degree in administration from Sam Houston State University before becoming a member of the Epps Island family in 2009. Again, I am glad to have the opportunity to work with our students, teachers, and parents and am excited to embark on the adventure of a new school year. Let’s get it started!
Ms. S. Nickerson, Assistant Principal

Greetings Epps Island faculty, staff, students and parents! My name is Shawn Nickerson, and I am honored and excited to serve as an assistant principal at Epps Island. I would just like to share a little bit about me. I have worked as an Instructional Specialist for the district and as the Assessment Coordinator for K-12 in Curriculum and Instruction before coming to Epps Island. Prior to that, I taught grades 6-8 English Language Arts for 5 years in Houston ISD. I am a proud graduate of the University of Houston. What I am looking forward to the most about Epps Island is the opportunity to work closely with students, teachers and parents to make positive differences in their lives.
