    Brian Fowler - Secondary Principal
     
    Howdy!

    I am Brian Fowler and I am the principal at Iola Secondary School. I am a fighting Texas Aggie class of 2001 and 2007 with a background in sport management and a strong interest in many subject areas, most notably science and history. I started my professional career working with ABC Sports, ESPN, and have also had the opportunity to work for several collegiate athletic departments, including Texas A&M University, University of Maryland, and SMU.

    For the last decade, I have been in a fulfilling career which has included teaching, coaching, and educational administration. My passion for sharing knowledge in a safe and positive environment empowers my mission to make Iola ISD the best district in the state of Texas.

    As an Iola ISD principal, I will strive to make Iola Secondary School a campus that every student loves attending each day with teachers who love being here. I enjoy working with the students of Iola and supporting the amazing staff and teachers that positively impact this school.

    When I'm not at school, I love to spend time with my beautiful wife and four children.

     I look forward to the upcoming school year with the Iola Bulldogs!

     Kindest Regards,

    Brian Fowler

  • Kristin Sajewski - Elementary Principal

    I am honored to be the principal of Iola Elementary, where we have the best students, staff, and parents! 

    Teaching has been my passion since I was a child, where I grew up in Magnolia, Texas. I was surrounded by educators in my family, and spent many hours up at the school with them on weekends and breaks. I would often help my grandmother grade papers or try out a lesson she was thinking about. My mom was my coach in junior high, where we clenched many district championships. I grew up seeing the hard work, heart-work, and dedication it takes to be an educator, and I wanted to be a part of that.

    After graduating high school in 2002, I received my bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies at Texas A&M University in 2006. WHOOP! From there, I went on to teach 3rd grade for Magnolia ISD for 8 years. What a challenging and rewarding job it was!

    I joined the Iola Elementary family in 2014, where I taught 4th grade and 3rd grade. I automatically fell in love with the students that I was blessed to see each day. In 2016, I felt that I wanted to continue to work with students and the school community through a different channel, and received my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University in 2018. 

    I am passionate about loving and educating all students and about inspiring others to grow in our teaching-craft everyday. Part of what makes Iola Elementary so special, is the tremendous amount of support we get from parents and the community. It is a blessing to get to come to work everyday!
