A Letter from our Principal

Dear Parents and Families of Kallison Elementary School,

My name is Billy Navin and it is my privilege and honor to serve as the first principal of Kallison Elementary School. Over the next few months my goal will be to assemble the best educators possible for what will be another amazing year. Kallison Elementary School will be a school focused on high academic expectations and it will also address the needs of the whole child to include character development as well as enriching experiences.

To introduce myself, I am a product of Northside ISD and a graduate of Marshall High School. I have worked as an educator in the District for 17 years. My wife also attended Northside schools and currently serves as a counselor. My two children attend Northside schools as well. My roles in Northside have included – PE teacher, fifth grade teacher, academic support teacher, and administrator. After receiving my master’s degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio, I served as the vice principal at Valley Hi Elementary School and Forester Elementary School in its inaugural year. I have spent the last six years as the principal of Esparza Elementary School, and even though I will miss the wonderful students, staff and community there, I cannot wait to share this amazing opportunity with you.

If there is one thing I want you to know about me as your new principal, it is that I believe with every ounce of my being that every child can succeed, and I know that not all success looks the same. I have very high expectations for each child, but most of all I believe our first priority is to tap into the curious nature of children by making learning fun and applicable to today’s society and workforce. It is critical that we create 21st century learners and make sure that we are doing everything possible to have our students ready to meet the challenges they will face after they graduate.  

Opening a campus provides us with the incredible responsibility and exciting opportunity to establish traditions that are relevant, meaningful, and timeless. I look forward to meeting all of you and hearing your thoughts on what will make the school experience you have at Kallison Elementary School the best you’ve ever had. My door will always be open to you and please feel free to e-mail me at billy.navin@nisd.net with any questions, concerns, or comments you’d like to share.
