Principal Johnson

Pamela Riggans- Johnson- Principal

It is an honor and privilege to serve another year in the Aldine Independent School District and community as an Elementary Principal. This year will be my 5th year as a school leader. I graduated from Debakey High School, obtained my Bachelor’s degree from Texas Southern University and my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Sam Houston State University.

I was named Johnson Elementary School Principal in 2015. I previously served as Assistant Principal of Marcella Intermediate School. I have also served as Curriculum Skills and Science Skills. My educational career began in 1995 as a Middle School Science Teacher.

As we embark on a new year, I lead with a vision of providing the best education possible for our students so that they will have unlimited choices and opportunities. We, as a staff, endeavor to build a strong home-school partnership which is vital to a child’s educational success.

Our theme this year is Teaming Up for Greatness. We are excited about our partnerships with the community and parents that will propel our students to soar to heights unknown!

Looking forward to a successful year!
