Principal's Message

Dear DVHS parents,

I am writing to you today to share that Del Valle High School Principal, Ameka Hunt will be leaving Del Valle ISD to serve as the principal of Weiss High School, where her children attend.  We would like to thank Mrs. Hunt for her time with us and for her service to the students, staff, and community of Del Valle ISD.  We appreciate her support in the midst of the pandemic, and for transitioning the high school into what will hopefully be the final chapter of the coronavirus.

With this news, I have named Ms. Kandice Smith as the new Del Valle High School Principal, effective May 16. I am excited to welcome Ms. Smith back to the high school after she has served as the Ojeda Middle School Principal this past year.

Prior to her principalship, Ms. Smith was associate principal at Del Valle High School for three years.  She began her journey in Del Valle ISD as a teaching assistant at Dailey Middle School in 2012 and then served as a teacher the following year, where she continued her educational path for the next five years.  Other accolades include serving as the coach for girls volleyball, basketball, and track at the middle school level, and the assistant coach for girls basketball and track at the varsity level.

Ms. Smith is a respected leader in our district. She has a history of building a positive culture and cares deeply about our students. I know she will continue to build an exceptional learning experience for all students at Del Valle High School.

We look forward to welcoming Ms. Smith!

Thank you,

Annette Tielle, Ed.D.

Superintendent
