April Mata-Tausch - Principal
Welcome to Brauchle Elementary, home of the amazing Cougars! I truly love Northside ISD and everything it has to offer our students and families. I’m a proud graduate of Taft High School- Go Raiders! I received my Bachelors degree from The University of the Incarnate Word (go Crusaders!) and my Masters degree from UTSA (go Road Runners!) I’m beginning my 20th year as an educator and truly enjoy every minute of being a teacher, learner, and administrator.

I’m the proud Principal of this phenomenal campus filled with endless opportunities! As a campus, we strive each and every day to build experiences for our students that will last a lifetime. We want to create learning experiences for our students that will help prepare each of them for all the places they dream of going in the future. When our students walk into our campus, we want their hearts to be overfilled with love, excitement, and a sense of family! We truly believe that through our partnership, together as one, school and home, there will be no limits for our Cougars!

Together we will Start Strong, Stay Strong and Finish Strong.

I'm looking forward to working with all of you! It’s going to be a fabulous year!
