Michael Timms, John Tyler High School Associate Principal of Curriculum & Instruction, was recently named the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) State of Texas Assistant Principal of the Year. This award is given to the assistant principal who exhibits exemplary performance and outstanding leadership in secondary education. Mr. Timms was unanimously selected to receive this honor by a committee of eight leading educators in the State of Texas.
“It is truly a pleasure to work side-by-side with Mr. Timms,” John Tyler High School Principal Shon Joseph said. “He is a highly effective leader on our campus, but more importantly, he is a positive influence on our students. I have no doubt many John Tyler graduates will list him as an inspiration in their future successes.”
By being selected TASSP State of Texas Assistant Principal of the Year, Mr. Timms earned a trip to a national conference in Washington, DC, where he will meet with the 49 other statewide assistant principals of the year. While in Washington, DC, he will also meet the President of the United States, the United States Secretary of Education, and federal lawmakers.
The TASSP State of Texas Assistant Principal of the Year is selected from among the 20 Regional Assistant Principals of the Year. Mr. Timms was named the Region 7 Assistant Principal of the Year this past summer. He will now move on to compete for the National Assistant Principal of the Year recognition.
Mr. Timms has been an educator for 24 years. He began his career as a substitute teacher in Dallas ISD. After receiving his certification, he taught high school biology, then moved on to serve as an assistant principal and principal in several Dallas-area schools, including elementary, middle, and high schools. Mr. Timms has been at John Tyler High School since 2010.
