Mrs. Johanna Sanchez

Greetings Hearne Elementary School Staff, Students, and Families!

I am delighted to be the Principal of such an amazing school that is dedicated to making a difference in the Alief community. Together, we will work as a team to ensure this school year is magical! 

I am originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and moved to Houston, Texas to become a teacher. I am married to my best friend, Joseph, and have 2 daughters and 1 son. I describe myself as a servant leader who supports teachers, students, and families alike. I believe positivity is contagious so I am determined to spread it everywhere I go. When I am not at work, I am spending time with my family, reading, exercising, traveling, and cooking. 

I enjoy seeing students authentically engaged in learning, with teachers who are passionate about their craft. My goal as Principal is to ensure your students are safe every day and learning from dedicated professionals who also serve as exceptional role models. 

I encourage you to attend our campus events this year and show your support for our school community. We will update campus events and announcements on the website, so please check back frequently. Please also ensure your information is updated through the Home Access Center. 

Working together, this year will be awesome!  

Thank you for trusting Alief ISD and Hearne Elementary School to impact the life of your student. We do not take this responsibility lightly.
