I am delighted to begin my third year at Steiner Ranch Elementary.  This is my 25th year in education, and it is my 15th year in school and district elementary school administration.  I spent most of my education career in the Spring Branch Independent School District in West Houston, serving there as teacher, elementary mathematics instructional coach, district mathematics specialist, elementary principal, and district executive director of elementary teaching & learning.  My husband Allen and I relocated here in May of 2015 to be closer to family, as two of our three grown children (and more importantly, our two grandchildren!) live in Austin.  

I am blessed to have the privilege of leading this amazing campus of talented teachers and eager students, and I will continue to do my utmost to ensure that your children are safe, happy, and engaged in the best learning available in Leander ISD!

Although I am frequently in classrooms and team meetings, my door is open to you and your family.  I hope you always feel welcomed as valued partners in your child's learning, and I look forward to an amazing year at Steiner Ranch Elementary.


Assistant Principal
Rebecca Rainey

I am honored to serve Steiner Ranch Elementary as Assistant Principal again this year. It will be my seventh year in this position at SRE!  My professional career has always had a connection to the Steiner Ranch area.  I began my journey as a first and third grade teacher and later as an instructional technology facilitator, assisting teachers with integrating technology into the curriculum.  Before becoming an assistant principal, I served as instructional coach, supporting teachers with behavior management, classroom systems, curriculum, and planning.  I love living in the beautiful city of Austin and bleed University of Texas orange.  My husband and I have two little ones at home, Sloane and Hayes.

Please contact me if you have concerns about attendance, discipline, or bullying.  Mrs. Robinson and I spend much of our time in classrooms, but would love to meet with you.
