Gerrie Spellmann and Lisandra BlackDear Family and Friends of Woodridge Elementary School,

Welcome to Woodridge Elementary. We are the proud administrative team at Woodridge Elementary and we can’t imagine being anywhere else! We are honored to serve our community. At Woodridge, we will work together alongside you to ensure that our students receive the high standard of education for which Alamo Heights ISD is known. It is a pleasure to work with such an amazing group of students, parents, staff and community.
Be the WE is the creed at our school. This embodies our school community. I am in my 25th year in education as a teacher, academic dean, assistant principal, principal and just beginning my third year as principal at Woodridge Elementary. I can’t see myself doing anything else other than serving this community!

Hello Woodridge families! It is my pleasure to be serving as your new Assistant Principal. This is my 19th year in education. In that time, I have served a variety of communities in the central and south-central Texas area in diverse roles. I have had experience as a special education teacher, in both middle school and elementary, as a bilingual teacher, in both transitional and dual language models, as bilingual interventionist, and for the last 5 years as district bilingual/ESL specialist for elementary. I have had the awesome opportunity to pioneer a dual language program, as well as continue to be instrumental in its growth, including recruitment and curriculum development. I am absolutely thrilled to continue my journey in public education here at Alamo Heights, where honoring language and culture are embedded in the core values of the district. This year is certainly full of promise! I am excited about the future and look forward to serving you, as we aspire to dream big together.
