Hello Epps Island!

My name is Tonya Brain and I am the newest member of the Epps Island administrative team. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to work with an amazing staff, wonderful children, and fantastic parents. It is going to be a GREAT school year!

I come to Epps Island with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston (Go Coogs!) and my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Lamar University. Prior to this I taught English Language Arts, Texas History, and US History in grades 7 and 8, as well as English Language Arts and Social Studies in grade 5.

I consider myself the luckiest woman in the world because I have the opportunity every day to impact student’s lives for the better. I cannot wait to get to know you ALL!

I am thrilled to be joining Epps Island Elementary as the newest Assistant Principal! I am beginning my 12th year in education. I’ve held a variety of positions throughout my career, including 3rd and 4th Grade Teacher, ESL Coordinator, Instructional Specialist, and School Counselor.  I earned a Bachelor of Science in 1997 from Sam Houston State University (Eat ‘Em Up Kats!), and have a Master of Education degree, as well. 

When I'm not at school, you'll probably find me relaxing with my family, shopping, spending time with the giraffes at the Houston Zoo, traveling to New Orleans, or running around with my dog, Ginger.  And of course, during football season, I try to catch as many games as possible (
Go Saints!).

I am looking forward to getting to know the families, students and educators at Epps Island Elementary!
