Read-a-thon high school girl and principal award
Mrs. Danna Forbes-Martin » Welcome!


I am ecstatic to transition from Academic Dean to Principal at Advantage Academy's Grand Prairie East campus!
This is my 7th year in education, and I feel I become more passionate each year about my career.  I taught English for two years at Venus High School and was also a Varsity Cheer Sponsor.  I then spent three years teaching English Language Arts and Reading, Social Studies, and ESL for grades 6-12 at Cleburne ISD's DAEP.  I taught English I and III as well as Foundations of Reading at AAGPE last year. I began this year as Academic Dean and stepped into the Principal position when it became available at the beginning of the second nine weeks. 
Motivating students to be their best is my passion, as you will soon see.  I am all about getting to know my students' interests and making learning a life-long experience.  I consider it both a pleasure and an honor to take part in the foundation of their education.
Please feel free to contact me with any ideas and/or concerns through my school phone and email.  I understand your child's needs are your priorities, and I assure you they are my priorities, as well.  I am eagerly anticipating working by your side to make your child's school experiences meaningful and memorable.
