Mrs. Andi Sosa, Principal
Andi Sosa - Principal
I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with my Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees. I have a Bachelor of the Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master of the Arts in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. I am beginning year sixteen with Northside and can’t think of a better place to work or for my children to attend school. All of my experiences have been in Title I schools. I have served as a second, third, and fourth grade teacher and was a vice principal for five years prior to coming to Carnahan. It is important to me to stay actively involved in the community. I love learning new things and try to instill that in the staff and students that I lead.

I feel that character building is a key component for children. When we instill these values in them at an early age, it becomes their normal, daily behavior. It is important that we are teaching our children to have grit and perseverance. We want to instill in our children that when things get difficult or we fail, we must keep trying until we succeed. As adults, children are always looking at how we respond, so it is important to model positive behaviors for children. In addition to the academics, we do have a school wide focus on building character. We utilize NISD's 6 Pillars of Character, along with the Quantum 8 Keys of Excellence.

Please know that I have an open door policy. Being a parent myself, no concern is ever too small. My philosophy is that it takes the school, student, and parents all working together in order for a child to reach their fullest potential. I do ask that you start with the classroom teacher if you have a concern. They often have more information and details regarding concerns since they are with the children all day.

Each and every day, there is someone making a difference or something happening at Carnahan that makes my heart burst with pride. We have hard working teachers, students and parents. Please follow us on Twitter (@NISDCarnahan) and Facebook to see the many wonderful things that happen around our school. I am proud to serve the cardinal community and I look forward to a great year!
