Dear Parents, Students, Teachers and Community,
I am De’Ann Upright and I am so honored to have been selected as the Principal of Dr. Sara McAndrew Elementary School.
I am a native Texan and grew up in the San Antonio area. I attended Texas State and The University of Texas at San Antonio, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree. I later attended Texas A&M University-Kingsville where I received a Master of Science degree.
My experience in education is diverse. In my twenty-three years of teaching and administrative experience, I have had the opportunity to work at four distinctly different NISD elementary campuses. I look forward to utilizing my experiences and training as both an educator and an administrator to educate, motivate and support your children on their journey. I look forward to working together to validate our students and create an environment that challenges them to think deeply, live compassionately, strive for excellence and encourage the same from others as well.
I am extremely excited to begin the process of establishing the McAndrew community and the traditions that will define our school for years to come!
