Mr. Mark Humphries
Welcome to Shady Shores Elementary School. I am Mark Humphries, your assistant principal at Shady Shores. Please allow me to introduce myself a bit more 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 continue to serve in Lake Dallas ISD at another wonderful campus, and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in the SSE community.
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 one beautiful granddaughter.
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.
