The Coppell Independent School District recently named Lynn Ojeda as the new principal for Coppell Middle School North. Lynn graduated from Stephen F. Austin University in 1990 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and English. She went on to earn two Master's degrees in Secondary Education in 1999 and in Educational Administration in 2007, both from the University of North Texas.
In 1991, Lynn began her 19-year educational career in Plano ISD. She spent thirteen years teaching middle school Spanish before accepting her first administrative role in 2003 as an Administrative Intern at Bowman Middle School. Since 2007, Lynn has served as an Assistant Principal, also at Bowman Middle School, and, in 2008 and 2009, she took on the additional role of 8th Grade Summer School Coordinator for Plano ISD.
Lynn is bringing a wealth of knowledge and passion to the CMS North campus, where she looks forward to building great relationships with students, staff and parents. She believes, "Middle school students are on the verge of becoming who they will be as adults and I, and the campus staff, have the opportunity to inspire them. I want to be innovative in using my students' interests as outlets for inspiring all learners."
Lynn and her husband Homero, a native of Mexico, have three children: Maya (14), Joey (10), and Jacob (3). Her bilingual, bicultural family enjoys performing, traveling and learning more about the culture of Mexico. Her other past-times include reading and playing the trombone; she has even been known to join in with the school band.
