Phelps will replace retiring interim principal Bill Bechtol, who filled in for the year after the school's former principal Bryan Shippey took an assistant principal role at Westlake High School last June.
She will begin her new post in July, and a meet-and-greet with students and parents will be scheduled in August, said Claudia McWhorter, EISD Executive Director of Communication, in a news release.
“To say I’m honored sounds so cliché, but I really am,” Phelps said at the April 25 meeting. “Eanes ISD has been a district I aspired to come to, and I think anyone in education would agree with me that it’s definitely a destination district. It really is an honor and I want to start tomorrow. I’m ready.”
Phelps is currently serving as associate principal of Vandegrift High School and formerly served as the school’s assistant principal, Superintendent Tom Leonard said at the meeting.
Phelps has also worked at Lake Travis High School as a special education teacher and head cheer coach, McWhorter said in the release.
