John Booles named principal of Carter Elementary
John Booles, current principal of Sendera Ranch Elementary School, will serve as the inaugural principal of Molly Livengood Carter Elementary School, bringing a familiar face to a new campus.
As the leader of Sendera Ranch Elementary for the past seven years, Mr. Booles has successfully steered the campus through periods of tremendous growth in a popular area of Northwest ISD. He previously served as the school’s assistant principal for three years and was an elementary teacher in the district for seven years.
Future Carter Coyotes will lead an exciting educational journey at the first-year school, Mr. Booles said.
“Opening a new school is always filled with milestones of ‘firsts,’ and I’m eager to meet all of our students and families,” he said. “It’s a bittersweet moment to leave the students, families and staff of Sendera Ranch, but knowing several of our students and teachers will be on the same journey at Carter will help create a strong foundation for our school. And for the students, families and staff I haven’t yet met, we’re going to have a fantastic experience setting the standard for future generations of Coyotes to follow.”
Mr. Booles has served the students of Northwest ISD for nearly 20 years, joining the district in 2005 as an elementary teacher. He earned Haslet Elementary School’s Exemplar Educator award in 2011 and has garnered accolades for his commitment to meeting student needs.
In addition to his campus-based experience, Mr. Booles maintains an active role in professional organizations to continuously develop his skills, such as the Principals’ Institute and National Institute for School Leadership program.
Mr. Booles earned his master’s degree in education leadership from Lamar University and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. He also earned a postgraduate degree in education from LeTourneau University.
