Argyle ISD has named Dr. Dawn Jordan as the new Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction. 

Dr. Jordan has served the past four years in AISD as a campus principal. She led the opening of the new Argyle South Elementary School in Canyon Falls during the 2022-2023 school year.

Dr. Jordan has 21 years of experience in education and more than 12 years in multiple campus leadership roles. She replaces Dr. Deana Steeber, who left to become the Sulphur Springs ISD Superintendent in May.

“I am very pleased and excited to have Dr. Jordan as the new Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction,” Argyle ISD Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright said. “Dr. Jordan has been a valuable member of the AISD leadership team as Argyle Intermediate principal, Fifth Grade Center principal and most recently opened South Elementary. She has a high level of knowledge in curriculum and instruction as well as knowledge of working with and serving various special populations.” 

Before arriving in Argyle ISD, Dr. Jordan served as an elementary principal in Lewisville ISD for two years and three years in Mississippi. Her achievements include being named the 2018 LISD PTA Principal of the Year Award winner and being nominated for LISD Principal of the Year in 2019. While serving as a principal at Pascagoula-Gautier ISD (Miss.) she implemented a school-wide literacy plan and built an English as a Second Language parent group. 

While at the new South Elementary, she helped implement Professional Learning Communities, initiated Learning Walks to share best practices for teachers and developed a campus strategic plan and emergency plan. As the principal at AIS, the campus received an “A” in accountability and all distinctions.

Dr. Jordan also has extensive experience as a classroom teacher. She has taught high school biology, French and Spanish and elementary Spanish. 

“I am honored to be selected for this position and to join the talent represented on this team,” Dr. Jordan said. “I look forward to contributing to this district’s future and maintaining our exemplary success. Argyle has a very special place in my heart, and I am committed to supporting staff and students as we grow and learn together.”

Argyle ISD will immediately begin its search for the new principal at South Elementary.
