Dr. Amanda McCarther- Principal

I am humbled to serve the scholars, educators, parents, and the Bray Elementary School community as campus principal.  I am Dr. Amanda McCarther, and this is my nineteenth year in education.  Before becoming a principal, I have served as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, and academic associate principal.  With more than ten years of instructional leadership, I am an educator first.  Throughout my tenure, I have had the privilege to work alongside talented educators to support scholars academically, socially, and emotionally.  

My educational background includes a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership from Texas A & M University at Commerce, a Master’s of Education in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education grades K-8) from the University of Houston.  

During my leisure, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and our families.  We are a close-knit family who finds any reason to be together.  Outside of my family, I have a passion for dance.  Over the years, I have led multiple dance ministries and have shared my love of dance with my students.  The dance and cheer teams I have sponsored focused on movement, service, confidence, and teamwork.     

I believe all scholars should receive a high-quality education that results in success in school and life.  I am looking forward to serving alongside the teachers, parents, and school community to provide Bray Elementary scholars a positive and meaningful educational experience.
