Principal's Corner

About Our Principal: Lauri Mapes

Mrs. Mapes is a 1985 graduate of Midlothian High School. She continued her education at Texas A&M University and graduated in 1989. After graduation she married Andy, who was in the military and began her teaching career in Olympia, Washington as a 4th grade teacher. During that time she was fortunate to be a part of a teacher exchange program that went to the Soviet Union. What a learning experience for her! Once her husband left the military Mrs. Mapes returned to Midlothian and taught there for 12 years. She spent one year as a third grade teacher and the remaining years as a 3rd/4th grade mix-age teacher. In 2001 Mrs. Mapes went back to school and earned her Gifted and Talented Endorsement, Masters in Education and her Administrative Degree. She graduated from Texas A&M Commerce in 2003. In summer of 2004 Mrs. Mapes and her family moved to Glen Rose and joined the staff of the Intermediate Campus as the assistant principal and was named principal in 2008. In 2011 she was awarded Principal of the Year by the Effective Schools Project from Tarleton University. She looks forward to many years of working with the staff and community to provide a high quality education for our children.

Mrs. Mapes is married to Andy and they have two children Curry and Maysen. Both are proud Glen Rose Tiger graduates. Both of her kids are attending Texas A&M University. Some of her favorite things to do are travel, read and work in the yard. Mrs. Mapes and her family love this community and feel there is not better place than Glen Rose, Texas!
