Meet the Principal

Dear Bonham Parents and Students,

I am honored to serve as your principal at Bonham Middle School and to be a part of the Temple ISD family. My educational experience includes serving as a middle school Math, Science Teacher, Math Facilitator, Assistant Principal and Elementary Principal. Felicia Gibson and Larry Placencia are your assistant principals. Mrs. Gibson has served as a elementary school teacher and a middle school Math, Science and ESL Teacher, and served as an Instructional Coach . Mr. Placencia has served as a middle school Science Teacher, and as an Assistant Principal. We look forward to getting to know you and your child, and partnering with each of you and our district leadership team to serve students, families, and staff here at BMS.

We strive to provide the highest quality education possible so our students achieve their maximum potential. We accomplish this by providing engaging learning experiences and rigorous instruction. Our students have achieved numerous academic, athletic, and Fine Arts awards. Thanks to our community’s support BMS is now offering four year-long technology courses for our students. These computer programming and web design courses specifically support the Temple High School technology career pathways. Chrome books are also integrated into our students’ everyday learning as part of our 2:1 Chrome Book Initiative. Each core classroom has at least one device for every two students in addition to our existing technology environment. The Temple ISD Chrome Book Initiative will focus on Bloom’s Taxonomy of Higher Order Thinking Skills.

Sally Blake is our Communities in Schools representative and is here to help you and your child. Please contact BMS to get your student signed up.

Our students’ success relies on a strong partnership between parents, school, and community. Parents are always welcome at Bonham and are encouraged to be a part of their student’s education. Together we can help our students be successful!
