Mr. Mark Humphries

Welcome to Shady Shores Elementary School. Please allow me to introduce myself a bit to you. I have been an assistant principal in Lake Dallas ISD since 2012. I started my service as an administrator at Lake Dallas Elementary and worked there from August 2012 until June 2018. I was asked to serve as the assistant principal at SSE starting in 2018. This was an exciting opportunity for me to be able to continue to serve in Lake Dallas ISD at another wonderful campus, and I truly enjoy working with our students, parents, and staff here at SSE.

I have worked in Texas public schools since 1992. Prior to working as an assistant principal I taught first, second, third, and fourth grades in general education classes as well as bilingual and dual-language classes. My wife and I have been married for over 30 years, and we have four wonderful daughters and two beautiful granddaughters. 

My desire is to work with all stakeholders at SSE - students, faculty and staff, parents, and other community members - to create an environment that will challenge all of our students to grow academically, socially and emotionally so that each child will reach their potential.
