“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a campus named after two educators who dedicated their lives to shaping the future of CFISD,” Fisher said. “At Wells Elementary, the future will be visible to our students in the form of an educational village, where instructional, technological and collaborative opportunities will abound.
“I look forward to continuing the great traditions of CFISD while leading the way with 21st-century learning—utilizing the innovative design of the campus and educational community. I am thrilled to begin building a culture of excellence with our new Wells family.”
