Dear Fred Douglass Students and Families,
Hello! My name is Randi Maldonado, and I am so excited to be joining Fred Douglass this year as one of the assistant principals on our campus. While this is my first year as an administrator, I was previously the counselor at East Side Elementary for four years and a classroom teacher for nearly 10 years prior to that. I earned my master's degree from the University of Texas at Tyler, and I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with my bachelor's degree, (Hook 'Em Horns!). My husband, Frankie, and I have four wonderful children: two sons who currently attend Jacksonville High School, one son who graduated from JISD, and one future Indian, our 3-year old daughter.
I cannot wait to meet all of you! I believe the core strength of a school community comes from the connections we make with each other, as well as the joys and experiences we share. I am looking forward to us all learning and growing together this year at FD. If there is ever anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to let me know. We are "Focused on Our Future" here at Fred Douglass Elementary, and we are ready to have the best year ever!
