My name is Sheila Yeager, and I am extremely proud to be part of the Sul Ross family. I am a product of NISD and graduated from Clark High School. I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas Wesleyan University and my Educational Leadership from UTSA. I started my teaching career right here at Ross as a reading teacher. I transitioned to Anson Jones Middle School as a Reading Coordinator, Assistant Principal, Academic Dean as well as Vice Principal. I came back home to Ross Middle School in 2017 as Vice Principal where I have had the pleasure to work with our students, parents, teachers and community. It’s a great day to be a Rebel!

Mahntie Reeves - Academic Dean
My name is Mahntie Reeves and I am excited to call the Sul Ross Community my home. Me encanta la comunidad de Sul Ross. As the Academic Dean of the campus, tantamount to my view of our instructional approach is the belief that it is our job to enliven the innate potential of every child to grow and develop. My main objective is making sure that all of our students are college ready, whether they be going to a four-year university, two-year university, starting their own business, or going to a trade school. Mi objetivo es el exito de cada uno de nuestros estudiantes aqui en la escuela. This is accomplished through helping teachers work collaboratively in Professional Learning Communities to design rigorous learning experiences that challenge all students to think and demonstrate deeper understanding of the content that they encounter on a daily basis.
