Dan D. Rogers Elementary Principal Lisa Lovato, a Dallas ISD Principal of the Year, started her career in education as an ESL teacher.
In her first year of teaching, Lovato was asked to be on the campus instructional team. The team inspired her to learn as much as she could and think on a global perspective. Lovato has remained a committed educator ever since and become a top campus leader in the district.
“I am here for kids, and not just for an achievement score on a STAAR test,” Lovato said. “I want to help students discover who they are so they can use that to navigate through the world.”
When she isn’t working, Lovato is spending time with her two daughters, playing softball, doing family trivia, and being a “foodie.”
