Tiffany O’Donnell Port O’Connor School Principal

When school starts on August 26, Port O’Connor students will get to meet their new principal, Tiffany O’Donnell. Mrs. O’Donnell, who has been Assistant Principal at HJM Elementary in Port Lavaca for the past three years, will be replacing Lydia Strakos, who after several years of outstanding service at Port O’Connor School, has been named Calhoun High School Principal.

Mrs. O’Donnell has more than 15 years of classroom experience as a teacher at Jackson Roosevelt in Port O’Connor, including one year as Intervention Specialist. She has resided in Port Lavaca most of her life and lives there with her husband Bryce, owner of Burdge O’Donnell Pools of Victoria, and their three children, Bryce, 16; Elle, 12; and Emme, age 9.

Speaking of her new role as principal, Mrs. O’Donnell said, “I have some big shoes to fill. My goal is to be a strong, instructional leader and support to teachers, students and parents.”

“I’ve heard so many great things about the faculty, students, and the strong-knit Port O’Connor community, “ she said. “I’m excited to be a part of it.”

The school will also have a new kindergarten teacher this year, Monica Peters of Port O’Connor. Ms. Peters will be replacing Renee Hawes, who will now be the Special Ed/RTI (intervention specialist) teacher.
