Principal - Luis Valdez
Hello Parents and Scholars of Roy Johnson STEM Academy,
Let me begin by introducing myself! My name is Mr. Valdez and I am your principal at Everman ISD newest campus, Roy Johnson STEM Academy. I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year and to congratulate your child for being the first students to be part of one of the most innovative campuses in Everman ISD.
This school year will mark my 32nd year in education. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to lead campuses ranging from Prekindergarten to 12th grade. Most recently, I have been principal at Baxter Jr. High and have served as principal in other school districts (Manara STEM Academy, United ISD-Laredo Tx, Plano ISD and Dallas ISD). I am excited to bring my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students and celebrate their successes.
If you drove past the school, you may have noticed numerous maintenance and construction projects. First, we have a new roof, a new digital marquee pending installation and the campus has been repainted along with many other renovations. Much planning, construction and hard work have definitely gone into preparing for a successful school year.
At Johnson STEM Academy, students will be enrolled in STEM classes such as App Creators, Flight and Space, Automation & Robotics and other Project Lead the Way courses. Traditional elective courses such as Band, Choir, and Athletics will also be available to all our students.
Our students will be able to discover and learn about all future career and educational possibilities such as in Engineering, Computer Science, Coding, and Website Designer. A 21st-Century learning environment will be provided to students that emphasizes and develops skills in innovation, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
Roy Johnson STEM Academy will also offer small classroom sizes and the latest in instructional technology. Each classroom is equipped with a state-of-the-art interactive smart board and Chromebooks for each student.
I am looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and nurturing environment, as well as offering a challenging and diverse curriculum at THE “Roy Johnson STEM Academy”.
Together we can do this.
