June 24, 2020

During the current summer transition time between school years Wimberley ISD is restructuring some administrative personnel roles. Ms. Andrea Pope was asked by Superintendent Dwain York to serve Wimberley ISD as Student Academic Services Advisor. Replacing her as Principal at Jacob’s Well will be current Blue Hole/Scudder Primary Assistant Principal Mrs. SueAnna Thomas.

The 2020-21 school year will begin Mrs. Thomas’s 30th year in elementary education, including 11 years at neighboring Hays County districts Dripping Springs ISD and Hays CISD. “WISD is lucky to have a professional of SueAnna’s caliber already serving in our district, and I’m thrilled to be able to welcome her to this position,” WISD Superintendent Dwain York said. “Her familiarity with so many of our Jacob’s Well students and families is just one of many reasons why she will be a great fit in this role,” he added.

In Ms. Pope’s transition to Student Academic Services Advisor, she will be assisting with the coordination of alternative educational opportunities within WISD, assisting with pre-assessment coordination as well as ongoing benchmark assessments throughout the year, and will assist with data gathering and other compliance pieces. “I’m pleased that Andrea has accepted this role,” York said. “Her administrative experience will lend itself well to the duties this position requires.”

Additionally Ms. Susan McDorman has announced her retirement as Assistant Principal at Jacob’s Well Elementary. Ms. McDorman just completed her 13th year with WISD, beginning her WISD stint at the Bowen campus in 2007. “Susan’s contributions to WISD are much appreciated,” York said. “She has certainly impacted so many students and helped them to become better versions of themselves. She will be missed by all at WISD.”

The Assistant Principal positions for both Jacob’s Well and Blue Hole will be posted soon and interviews will begin in the next couple of weeks.
