Dr. T. Lamar Goree, Superintendent of Caddo Schools, announced the appointment of two new elementary principals. Sandra Mack will now serve as principal of Shreve Island Elementary and Heather Williams will serve as principal of South Highlands Elementary Magnet.
“It is with my utmost confidence that these two leaders are the right choices for the future of Shreve Island and South Highlands Elementary,” Dr. Goree said. “They both know these schools well and I know they will make Caddo students and families very proud.”
Mack most recently served as the assistant principal at Shreve Island for seven years and instructional coordinator prior to that. She started her career with Caddo at Walnut Hill Elementary/Middle as a classroom teacher where she taught for 18 years. Mack is a graduate of Jackson State University with a bachelor’s degree in education and a graduate of LSU Shreveport where she earned her master’s degree in education administration and supervision.
Now in her 25th year as an educator, she shares that she wants Shreve Island to continue to grow as a Lighthouse School, a program that builds and nurtures a community of leaders who respect differences and strive for personal excellence.
“I feel very fortunate to have served at Shreve Island. I am both elated and honored to be appointed to my very own school, where I can continue my work with the students, staff, and parents,” said Mack.
Williams is no stranger to South Highlands either. She has spent most of her teaching career with Caddo at South Highlands as a classroom teacher. In 2019, she was called on to serve in a leadership position as the instructional coordinator at Judson Fundamental Magnet Elementary. She is now returning to what feels like home.
“This school is near and dear to my heart,” said Williams. “South Highlands has always created life-long learners by igniting curiosity, encouraging educational risk-taking and promoting perseverance in problem-solving. This standard of excellence will continue!”
Williams has been an educator for more than 15 years. She is a graduate of Texas Tech University where she earned her bachelor of science in early childhood education and a graduate of Arkansas State University with a master’s in educational leadership.
