NORMA Farrell, Vice Principal

Hello, my name is Norma Farrell, and I am honored to serve as the Vice Principal of Los Reyes

I began my teaching career as a fourth grade bilingual teacher in North East ISD. After several years
there, I was blessed with the opportunity to join Northside and open Wanke Elementary. While at
Wanke, I served as a fourth and third grade bilingual teacher. During my last year there, I was appointed
Assistant Principal at Beard and Ott Elementary. The following school year, I was fortunate to once
again open a new school, Henderson Elementary, as the Vice Principal. After two years at Henderson, I,
yet again, opened another beautiful new school, Los Reyes. Having opened three new schools in such a
short time frame is a testament to how quickly Northside has grown and continues to grow.

My incredible husband, Patric, and I have two beautiful daughters. Our 12 year old attends Jefferson
Middle School, and our seven year old is a second grader at Krueger Elementary. As a family, we enjoy
watching movies, taking road trips, and trying new restaurants in and around San Antonio. In addition
to spending quality time with my family, I enjoy reading in my spare time.

I invite you to contact me at any time should you have any questions or concerns. My priority is the
safety and success of your children!
