Principal Portrait
Dr. Maricela Alarcon - Principal
It is an honor and privilege to serve the Knowlton community as the school principal. I believe in making children a priority, the importance of family, and building strong relationships with the community.
In terms of my professional trajectory in NISD, I served as a Vice Principal for three years. I completed two years at Mead Elementary School and one year at Northwest Crossing Elementary School. Prior to serving as a school administrator, I was a fourth (2 years) and fifth (5 years) grade bilingual classroom teacher at Burke Elementary School. I also served as the Language Support Teacher at Fisher Elementary School.

I graduated from Rice University in 2002 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Sociology. I graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University in 2007 with my Master’s Degree in Elementary Bilingual Education. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Texas in San Antonio with my Doctorates Degree in Educational Leadership.

I believe education is the vehicle towards success and everyone deserves a quality education. No matter the person’s background, a quality education can help equalize differences among people. This is a belief I share with the Knowlton Knights. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your children.

Es un honor y un privilegio servir a la comunidad de Knowlton como la directora escolar. Creo en hacer a los niños una prioridad, la importancia de familia y la importancia en construir relaciones fuertes con la comunidad.

He servido en varios puestos con el distrito Northside. Recientemente, terminé mi tercer año como subdirectora y mi primer año en la primaria Northwest Crossing. Antes de este año, era la subdirectora de la primaria Mead. Los primeros siete años fui maestra bilingüe de cuarto (2 años) y quinto (5 años) en la primaria Burke. También fui la especialista del programa bilingüe en la primaria Fisher.

En el 2002, gradué de la Universidad de Rice en Houston, Texas con un título en psicología y sociología. En el 2007 gradué de la Universidad Our Lady of the Lake con mi maestría en educación bilingüe. En el 2012 gradué de la Universidad de Texas en San Antonio con mi doctorado en liderazgo educativo.

Creo que la educación es el vehículo hacia el éxito y todo el mundo merece una educación de calidad. No importa las circunstancias de la persona, una educación de calidad puede ayudar a igualar las diferencias entre las personas. Esta es la creencia que comparto con los caballeros de Knowlton. Espero con emoción en conocer y aprender sobre usted y sus hijos.

"Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that a son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another." -Nelson Mandela

I am truly honored and privileged to be the Vice Principal at Knowlton Elementary! It is a blessing to be part of such an amazing community of teachers, staff, parents, and students. I am extremely excited about working closely with Dr. Alarcon to ensure the academic, social, and emotional success of our Knights.

I am originally from El Paso, Texas. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California. I graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership from Concordia University in Austin, TX.

I previously served as the Vice Principal at Ellison Elementary School for three years. Prior to serving as an Administrator I was a Pre-K, 2nd and 4th grade Bilingual Teacher. I was also very fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve at Leon Valley Elementary School as the Math Specialist for three years.

I truly believe in the importance of education and in the great responsibility our teachers hold in guiding our children. I believe that education is the key to success and my hope is that I will be able to keep motivating students to enjoy school and continue their education. I aim to spread the love for learning and knowledge, as well as to inspire students and staff to do their best and exceed their own personal limits.

I look forward to getting to know each one of our "Knights" and their families while making many more great memories TOGETHER!





¡Es realmente un honor y privilegio ser la subdirectora de la Primaria Knowlton! Es una bendición ser parte de una comunidad tan increíble de maestros, personal, padres y estudiantes. Estoy extremadamente entusiasmada con la oportunidad de trabajar en estrecha colaboración con la Dr. Alarcón para garantizar el éxito académico, social y emocional de nuestros estudiantes.

Soy originaria de El Paso, Texas. Obtuve mi Licenciatura en Relaciones Internacionales de la Universidad del Sur de California. Me gradúe de la Universidad de Concordia en Austin, TX con maestría en liderazgo educativo.


Antes de unirme a la familia de Knowlton, serví como subdirectora en la escuela primaria Ellison por tres años. También tuve la suerte de haber tenido la oportunidad de servir en la Escuela Primaria Leon Valley como especialista en matemáticas durante tres años. Antes de esa experiencia serví como maestra de Pre-Kinder, segundo y cuarto grado.

Realmente creo en la importancia de la educación y en la gran responsabilidad que tienen nuestros maestros para guiar a nuestros hijos. Creo que la educación es la clave del éxito y espero poder seguir motivando a los estudiantes para que disfruten de la escuela y continúen su educación. Mi objetivo es difundir el amor por el aprendizaje y el conocimiento, así como inspirar a los estudiantes y al personal a hacer lo mejor y superar sus propios límites personales.

¡Espero conocer a cada uno de nuestros "Caballeros" y sus familias mientras hacemos muchos más buenos recuerdos JUNTOS!
