Principal's Message

On behalf of everyone at Ortiz Intermediate, I would like to welcome you back to the new school year! I am extremely humbled and honored to serve as Principal of Ortiz Intermediate, leading alongside such an exemplary school community comprised of amazing students, exemplary teachers and supportive parents!


       As a homegrown, 1998 graduate of Robstown High School, my aim is to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships; developing the whole student ā€“ emotionally, socially and academically. We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs, and each with differing learning styles. I am not only excited to work with our students, but I also look forward to working alongside you and our amazing team, as we grow and learn from each other! I firmly believe we have some of the best students around, simply because we have some of the best teachers around!!


       I believe in open and frequent communication and sincerely welcome your conversation and input during this year. If you should need anything, please feel free to contact me by email/phone or by stopping by Ortiz. My email is [email protected]

and my phone number is (361)767-6662 ext. 3010. It is through working together that we will succeed in bringing the best educational opportunities to your child. Our students are the primary focus of our work and we are truly invested in partnering with families to make sure your child reaches his or her full potential. I canā€™t wait to celebrate our collective successes during the school year.
