Mrs. Stephanie Ford -Principal

Dear Students, Parents, Teachers, and Community Members,

Welcome to another amazing school year!

I am delighted to serve as Principal of Alice W. Douse Elementary School. At Alice W. Douse, we are committed to helping students develop a growth mindset, so that they are able to learn at high levels and achieve their maximum academic potential. Together, the current administration and staff, we will make it our goal to forge positive and lasting relationships between staff, student, parents, and community members.

Here at Douse Elementary "Achieving Excellence" for every student is our priority. We are committed to our vision of building a solid foundation of learning for all students to become critical thinkers who live with integrity and are prepared for their role as responsible citizens of the future. I will facilitate this commitment by providing instructional leadership and consistent support for the entire Alice W. Douse Elementary School team.

I have been an educator with the Killeen Independent School District for 11 years. I have had the opportunity to be a part of many learning experiences in KISD: a 5th grade teacher, a Kindergarten thru 5th grade Reading Interventionist, Killeen Elementary Science Olympiad Co-Director, KISD Classroom Management Facilitator, KISD New Teacher Mentor, Curriculum/Campus Instructional Specialist, an Assistant Principal and now, Principal.

My husband, Dwayne is a retired military veteran who has served our country for 28 years. I am also a military veteran. We have four amazing children, Ebony, Devin, Destiny, and Dwayne. We also have two additional family members, Bella and Zoe, our little pet dogs.

It is my firm belief that ALL students can achieve. I will make it my goal to ensure administration and staff members share in that belief and believe that ALL students matter and make it their goal to always to do what is best for students. With collaboration and input from all educators and stakeholders, we will help our students perform to their maximum potential. As the instructional leader of Douse Elementary, my goal is to always help other educators to bring out the best in themselves, in return they can give their best to our students.

I look forward to our partnership in educating our future leaders.

Stephanie Ford
