    I was overjoyed to join RJW Elementary in 2016 in the role as Principal. I have been in education since 1997.  I taught kindergarten and served as a Reading Recovery Teacher and Literacy Specialist in Alvin ISD for 9 years. I started my administrative career in 2006. I served as a testing coordinator at Hitchcock High School for one year and then moved to Pearland ISD where I was an assistant principal for 3 years and the principal for 6 years at Lawhon Elementary.

    I have lived in Santa Fe since the age of four and feel privileged to be a principal in my hometown. My husband and I both grew up in Santa Fe and our children have gone through the school district as well. I am passionate about ensuring a quality education for every child. I also strive to create a campus culture where each staff member treats every student at RJW the way they would want their child or loved one to be treated.

    When I am not at school, I enjoy reading a good book, being outside soaking up the sun and spending time with my family.

    I strive to always have an open door and I welcome feedback that will improve our school.  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My email is michelle.pourchot@sfisd.org. I will typically reply to emails and calls within 24 hours.
