Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Ari Weinberg

Hi Panther Family! My name is Ari Weinberg, and I am one of the 2 assistant principals here at Schimelpfenig. This year I will be working with our 8th graders primarily although I make it a point to get to know our 6th and 7th graders as well. I absolutely love being part of such a close knit and vibrant school and community here at Schim. This is currently my 3rd year as AP here at Schim and my 13th year in education, all of it in Plano ISD. Prior to joining the Schimelpfenig team, I was a 6-8 science teacher at Haggard Middle School here in Plano. I received my B.S. in Business Administration as well as my teaching certification from the University of Texas at Dallas. I later received an M.Ed. in Educational Administration from Lamar University. On a personal level, I have been married to my wife Tara for 11 years, and we have 3 amazing daughters--Addy, Cora, and Ellie (ages 7, 5, and 9 months). We also have a ton of animals at our house. In my free time, I love to watch the Cowboys and the Mavericks. In addition, I like to play golf when possible and go for walks and bike rides with the kids. I am looking forward to a great year, and I can't wait to meet all of you!
