Greetings Passmore Community,

This year’s theme is Team Passmore! The faculty at Passmore is committed to ensure that our Panthers have a strong foundation to be strong in academics and strong in character. It is a privilege and an honor to be the Principal of Passmore Elementary. With this honor comes a great responsibility that I take to heart.

San Antonio is my hometown where I earned both my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts Degrees from St. Mary’s University. My belief for acquiring more knowledge and improving in my profession and my community was the impetus in obtaining a Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

My parents instilled in me the value of family, religion, and education. As a life long learner, I was accepted at the Graduate School of Education and participated in the Art of Leadership Program at Harvard University in 2015.

It was over 20 years ago that I began my career in education. As a public school teacher, I have had the pleasure of serving students in the Edgewood, La Joya, and Northside Independent School Districts. In addition, I have worked with first and second grade bilingual students as a Reading Specialist, and worked with kinder through fifth grade students as a Gifted and Talented Specialist at Passmore Elementary. My first year in administration was at Linton Elementary as the Vice Principal in Northside Independent School District.

I have been afforded several opportunities to serve educators in San Antonio as a Past President of Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association TEPSA in District 20 and a Board member for the St. Mary’s University Education Advisory Committee.

My philosophy of education is constructed from an old African proverb, It takes a village to raise a child. I recognize that education is the result of the integrity of a community, and I believe that everyone shares in the responsibility for the education of children.

Yours in Education,
Dr. Veronica Arteaga

The Associate Principal also serves as the Campus Behavior Coordinator.

Hello Panther families! My name is Nicole Wall and I am thrilled to serve as the Associate Principal at Passmore. I began my education career 12 years ago as a first grade teacher in Florida. Since then, I have taught first and fifth grade, been an instructional coach and a reading/writing specialist. I received my bachelors in education from the University of Miami and later continued my education at UNT where I completed my masters in educational leadership. I am excited to continue my career serving the great families of Passmore.

I love that I get the privilege to work alongside a great community of parents, teachers, staff, and students, where together we can instill a love of learning in our students. I believe in high expectations for all and know that, when given the proper guidance and support, everyone can and will meet those expectations. I am excited to watch our Panthers grow and learn every day.
