Recently appointed Spring ISD trustees Carmen Correa and Natasha McDaniel are each running unopposed in the Nov. 2 election.

Correa, who represents Position 6 within the district, and McDaniel, who represents Position 7, were appointed to the board in August after former trustees Donald Davis and Jana Gonzales retired in July.

Following the announcement that Davis and Gonzales were retiring, the district put out an official call for applications from qualified candidates to fill the two unexpired terms. The district and the board reviewed applications and met with potential candidates before voting on the appointments.

Correa, who graduated from the University of Phoenix with a global business management degree, is a 22-year resident of the district and longtime SISD volunteer where she served as parent co-chair of the SISD Student Health Advisory Committee.

Correa also served as a member of the SISD Parent Advisory Council, the Ponderosa Elementary School Parent Advisory Council, and as vice president and membership chair of the Ponderosa Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization.

McDaniel has lived in the district for almost 10 years since moving to the Spring area in 2011. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Bowling Green State University, and earned a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Sam Houston State University.

McDaniel has worked as an elementary school teacher, a language arts specialist and a district literacy coach in Aldine ISD. Most recently, she served as a classroom management coach with a local educational nonprofit and worked with area teachers as a cohort leader for House Bill 3 Reading Academies.
