The Brownsboro Independent School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve Ricky Daily as the new principal of Chandler Elementary School (CES), following the superintendent’s recommendation at the regular school board meeting held Monday.
“Since I arrived in Brownsboro, I have been extremely impressed with the servant leadership style that Ricky Daily brings to the district,” said BISD Superintendent Tommy Hunter. “With him, kids always come first.”
Daily will replace former CES principal, Susan Limmer, who recently took a principal job in the Whitehouse Independent School District at their sixth grade campus.
Daily has 11 years of experience in education, six of which he served in leadership positions.
Daily served as CES assistant principal this past school year. He previously served as assistant principal of Higgins Elementary in Whitehouse ISD from 2015-2016 and as the assistant principal of Chandler Intermediate from 2012-2015.
The current Chandler Intermediate Principal, Lisa Brown, expressed excitement for Daily and his new assignment.
“I am extremely proud of Mr. Daily. He works very hard to build relational capacity with the students, staff and parents that he serves. He is loved and respected by the community, and I am confident that under his leadership, CES will continue to focus on student growth and success,” said Brown.
Daily looks forward to working with the staff and parents to best serve the students at Chandler Elementary.
“We will stand as champions for children…and our focus will be on student growth and celebrating their growth every step of the way,” said Daily.
Daily graduated salutatorian from Brownsboro High School in 2001, and went on to persue a degree from University of Texas at Tyler. Upon graduation from UT-Tyler, Daily returned to teach algebra at BHS for five years. While teaching algebra, he received his master’s in educational administration from Lamar University in 2010.
“I have pursued a career in educational administration, because I want to continue to help make life better for children. Being an administrator gives me the unique opportunity to serve kids, teachers, parents and the community on a daily basis,” said Daily.
Daily and his wife of 10 years, Amy, have two sons, Jonah, 6 and Judson, 4. Both boys will attend CES this upcoming school year.
