Head Principal Dr. Sharla Williams
My name is Dr. Sharla Horton-Williams and I am the Head Principal at Advantage Academy North Duncanville. I have had a successful 20-year career in early childhood and PK-12 education, throughout which I have served as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal in private, public charter, and traditional public schools. I earned my doctorate degree in curriculum and instruction from Texas A&M University, where my research focused on the role of the school leadership in closing the opportunity-achievement gap. I am committed to achieving educational excellence and equity for all students - especially Black and Hispanic students who have historically been underserved in education. My favorite part of serving as principal is connecting with students and supporting teachers.
