Susan Wood
Susan Wood, the principal at Lake Jackson Intermediate School, is an exemplary educator and administrator.  She began her teaching career in Lubbock, Texas.  She then moved to Lake Jackson in 1991 joining the Brazoswood Independent School District family.   After five distinguished years teaching Math, History, and Computers at O.M. Roberts Elementary and one year teaching Math at Rasco, Susan began her journey seeking a greater impact in student education.  She sought a broader platform from which she could speak directly to the lives of both teachers and students and affect their educational experiences with a positive approach.  In 1998, Susan began her first year as an administrator at Brazoswood High School. During her time at Brazoswood, Susan assisted in the ground-breaking and opening of the new Ninth-Grade campus.  In addition to her administrative role at Brazoswood, Susan served as assistant principal at Brazosport High School and Lake Jackson Intermediate School.
Susan’s education began with her Associate of Arts Degree in Education and Psychology from Southwestern A/G University.  She remained a stay-at-home mom until her youngest child began kindergarten, at which time she went back to school to continue further with her education.  Susan then received a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in Elementary Education with a major in Education and a minor in English from Lubbock Christian University.  Following graduation, she started her teaching career.  Concurrent with her full-time teaching career, she continued her education and received her Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas.

According to Susan, education has always been a very significant aspect of her life.  As a young child, she had a “classroom” filled with her sisters, brother, neighbors, and beloved pets. Susan has been married for 39 years; and she and her husband have four biological daughters, two foster sons, and 11 grandchildren.  Susan has dedicated her life to the care and welfare of children because she loves and cares deeply for all children.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.”

am very excited to begin my second year as an assistant principal at Lake Jackson Intermediate School. I began my career in education fourteen years ago teaching 7th and 8th-grade mathematics. I received my Bachelor's degree in Education from the University of Northern Iowa and my Master's Degree in Education Administration from Lamar University. I believe that my role as an administrator is to enhance our students' education by promoting a positive school culture and learning environment.

n my spare time, I enjoy running and coaching my two children in soccer, basketball, and baseball. My family is very proud to be involved in Brazosport ISD-- my wife is a librarian in the district and we have a daughter in the third  grade and a son in first grade. We live, work, and play in Lake Jackson and love being a part of this great community.

After 10 years away, I am coming home to Brazosport ISD. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Panther Family. For the 12 years I was a classroom teacher, 11 were here locally at Freeport Intermediate School. I hold a bachelor’s degree in History along with a 6-12th grade social studies composite teaching certificate. During my time as a teacher, I mentored numerous student teachers and served in several leadership rolls. These experiences made me hungry for further opportunities to have an even greater impact and to take on additional leadership roles. Thus, I returned to the University of Houston – Clear Lake to earn my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration with a K-12 Principal certificate.

fter graduating with my master’s degree, I took a job in Pearland ISD as the K-12 District Social Studies Specialist. This job gave me a wonderful opportunity to do more. During my ten years in PISD, I worked with teachers from 22 different campuses from grades K-12. As the K-12 District Specialist, I coordinated curriculum, assessment development, the disaggregation of local and state assessments, and I worked closely with teachers to develop meaningful remediation for all students.

owever, I very much missed being with the students and the interactions with them on a daily basis. I missed seeing great teaching EVERYDAY; I missed the energy and the culture that can only be found on a campus full of students and teachers passionate about making every day count. So, I finally came back home - HOME to BISD and HOME to the Intermediate grade levels.
