Andrea Smith, who has been the principal at Sue Park Broadway Elemenatry school since it opened in 2007, announced this week that she will be leaving to take a position closer to her home in Montgomery, TX. Broadway serves K-4 students from the Spring Trails, Bender’s Landing, and Creekside neighborhoods. Here is the e-mail Mrs. Smith sent to announce the move.

Dear Broadway Students and Parents, 

After a considerable amount of thought, I have accepted a principal’s position at Madeley Ranch Elementary School in Montgomery ISD.  This campus is in my neighborhood, so I will no longer have a long commute to work every day.  With a family of six, this will allow me more time to spend with my children and husband, and an opportunity to contribute to the community in which I live. 

I cannot express enough how much Broadway has meant to me.  This has been an emotional time for me because it is difficult to leave a campus that I opened, that I love and have poured my heart into over the past 5 years.  I have always appreciated that Broadway has always been such a warm and inviting place to be.  I want to thank you for contributing to this environment and for partnering with me and our school. 

I hope you all know that Broadway will always have a place in my heart, and that I will forever treasure the memories we have created together.  I can’t imagine opening up a new school as a first time principal in any other community.   You, the staff and students here at Broadway have made it such a pleasure to serve as your Principal.  Thank you for your support and kindness throughout the past 5 years.    

 I will miss you all so much, but I know that you will be in great hands!  Nikki Conley our assistant principal and Sandi Lewis our counselor are both top notch as you all know, and we are proud to add Clinton Dulworth from Mitchell Intermediate as our second assistant principal.  Broadway will continue to flourish under their excellent leadership in conjunction with a strong instructional staff. 

Together we have opened a new school successfully.   We laid the foundation and set high expectations for students to receive a high quality education while also being loved and nurtured.  I have no doubt that this legacy will go on for years and years to come.  Our Stars will continue to always shine brightly down on Broadway because the best of the best lies within these walls!  

It has been my honor and pleasure to serve as your child’s principal.  Thank you for an incredible 5 years!
