Meet Mrs. Hentges - Principal and Campus Behavior Coordinator
Welcome to Wyatt and the 2021 - 2022 school year!
Last year presented many challenges so we are eager to get all of our students back in school. But, I also want to assure you that safety in our school environment is our #1 concern. Many of the safety protocols implemented last year will remain until they are no longer necessary.
I am beginning my 29th year with our awesome district and 7th year as principal at Wyatt! I feel extremely privileged to be a part of PISD and Wyatt's outstanding community of learners. Our teachers and students strive to learn something new every day, and we believe we have created an atmosphere that invites students to be engaged, take a risk, and tap into their creativity. Although student achievement drives our work each day we believe that the social- emotional development of our children is equally important. Therefore, we invest a significant amount of time building strong relationships within our classroom and grade level communities. We want every child to feel valued and respected and we know that they need guidance in working through the process of growing up.
Our hope is to partner with you while your child attends Wyatt; we value your support and participation and there are so many opportunities for you to become involved. Our teachers are commited to building strong parent partnerships and 100% of our staff has joined PTA. It is my hope that 100% of our parents will do the same. Becoming a member can make all the difference! Our PTA is the driving force of all the ‘extras’ that our students get and let me just say, there are so many extras!
I was raised in Chicago, Illinois and attended the awesome University of Illinois. This is where I began my journey in education. It’s also where I met my husband, Joe. We have three wonderful children – all attended Plano Schools and all attended Texas Universities. We couldn’t be prouder or more grateful to PISD for the foundation they provided for all of our kids. I have been a substitute, a teacher, a specialist and now an administrator in Plano!
Many of your children will move on to Rice Middle School when they complete 5th grade at Wyatt. I can assure you that your child's journey will continue in good hands when they reach that milestone. I can speak knowlingly about this because I spent 13 years of my teaching career at Rice; first teaching math, then becoming a specialist prior to becoming an administrator. I am always happy to talk with parents about questions you may have about middle school, especially if you want to know more about Rice!
