Janet Blackwell, the new principal at Rockenbaugh Elementary, is a familiar face to the RES family: She was the assistant principal at the school for the past four years. A former Carroll Elementary Teacher of the Year, Blackwell brings 20 years of teaching experience to the position.

“I am thrilled and honored to accept the position of Rockenbaugh’s principal,” Blackwell told “I love serving the students, parents and staff of Rockenbaugh’s community. We make an awesome team. I am looking forward to many great years together. My motto in life and for this school is, ‘Go the extra mile, it’s never crowded.'”

Blackwell is a member of the National Association of Elementary School Principals, the Association for Supervision and Curriculum and the Texas Council of Teachers of Mathematics. For the past two years she has served as a summer school coordinator for CISD and as the campus STAAR coordinator since 2013. As principal, Blackwell will now oversee the interviewing and selection of the RES assistant principal.
