Donna Trevino-Jones is the new principal of Academic and Behavior School East (ABS East) at Harris County Department of Education. As mother to two college graduates, the Conroe resident believes in the power of education in supplying opportunity.

“All students should have choices to pursue their passion, and education provides that access,” she said.

In joining Academic and Behavior School East, Trevino-Jones said she is eager to be part of the school’s progressive, dedicated team.  ABS East is a school in southeast Houston for students with emotional and intellectual challenges, including autism.  Students are served through contracts with their school district. Classes are small, with a low, student-to-teacher ratio. A behavior specialist and academic team implement a growth plan for each ABS student, with the goal for students to return to their home school districts to be successful in their school environment.

Trevino-Jones earned a Bachelor of Arts from Southern Methodist University, a Master of Science from Texas A&M-Commerce and is currently pursuing a doctorate degree.  Most recently she served as principal of Beth Anderson Elementary in Arlington ISD. Throughout her school leadership career, she has inspired both students and staff through her roles as principal, assistant principal and dean in Spring, Dallas and Pflugerville ISDs.
