Meet the Assistant Principals
Greetings Polk Nation Family!
It is with great enthusiasm that I serve the students, staff, and community at Ted Polk Middle School. My tenure brings a wealth of diversity in my educational experience. I have a Bachelors from Prairie View A &M University and Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Phoenix with further studies from Lamar University. As an educator, I desire to share my passion for excellence in education while meeting the diverse needs of all students with my fellow colleagues and community.
Throughout my career, I have served as a Language Arts/English teacher while simultaneously teaching AVID, and Bible Literature. After transitioning from the classroom, I served as an Early College Coordinator and Workplace Learning Coordinator. I am excited to bring that wealth of diversity to Polk Middle school.
Hello Polk Nation. My name is Calvin Capps and I have the distinct honor to serve as the Assistant Principal for all of 7th grade and for the 6th grade boys. This will be my 11th year in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD. My journey as an educator started in the Applied Academics class as a paraprofessional. With my drive to continue helping students I began my teaching career as a Positive Attitude for Success teacher. Knowing the struggle many students have in the classroom I became a Behavior Resource Specialist. Wanting to continue to help as many students as I could I became an Assistant Principal. My personal story of going from homeless to being the first ever in my family to receive a higher education degree helps me connect with my students. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas and my Masters of Education in Educational Leadership with Principal Certification from University of Texas at Arlington. Equity for all is crucial for success, and I am happy to be at Polk to help all students be college ready, career ready, and future ready. #LeadTheWay
