Cathy Jacobs, an assistant principal at Swenke Elementary School, was named the new principal at Matzke Elementary School. Jacobs replaces Becky Koop, who will open Pope Elementary School in Aug. 2013.
Jacobs has spent her entire 14-year education career in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Her career began at Ault Elementary School, where she taught for six years and served three years as an instructional specialist. In 2007, she accepted an assistant principal position at Moore Elementary School. She served two years at Moore prior to accepting her current position at Swenke when it opened in 2009.
“It is an honor to be selected to serve the district as the principal of Matzke Elementary,” Jacobs said. “I’m excited to join the Matzke community and work with the staff, students, and parents to continue the school’s tradition of success.”
