Lucille Gomez, Principal
Lucille Gomez - Principal
My name is Lucy Gomez and I am so excited to serve our Carnahan family as your Principal! I am a proud product of Northside (Go Mustangs!), and love that I am able to teach here as well!

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M - Kingsville, and a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from UTSA.

This will be my 16th year in this great district. Prior to joining the Carnahan community, I served as the Vice/Associate Principal at Driggers ES for the last 4 years, and the Admin Intern at Boone ES for 1 year. In addition, I was a classroom teacher for 10 years, having previously taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades at Cody ES and Forester ES- which I thoroughly enjoyed!

I like to make learning fun, exciting, enjoyable, and I love to laugh. I have high expectations, not only for all of you but myself as well. My door is always open so please don't ever hesitate to reach out to me for questions, comments, concerns, kudos, etc!

In my spare time, I have two nephews that I love to spoil rotten. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the beach, and crafting.
