Meet TIS Principal Samora Davis

Meet Samora Davis: New Principal at Tomball Intermediate School.

Mrs. Davis returns to a campus after recently serving as the Tomball ISD Director of Intervention and Languages Other Than English since 2016. In addition to that role, she was the District 504 Coordinator and Summer School Coordinator. 

She brings 17 years of experience in the field of education in both elementary and secondary to Tomball Intermediate. She began her education career as a student teacher at Tomball High School before landing her first job as a Spanish teacher and team leader at THS in 2001. 

After spending time as a bilingual educational diagnostician away from the district, she returned to TISD as an assistant principal at Tomball Memorial High School where she had the opportunity to focus on supporting students, teachers, and parents.

Mrs. Davis then moved into her district administrative role where she focused on equipping teachers and administrators with the ability to identify mental health, behavioral, and academic needs for our Tomball ISD students by the implementation of intervention. 

Mrs. Davis is a graduate of Sam Houston State University (‘01) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in education. She obtained her Master’s in Education as an educational diagnostician from Houston Baptist University (‘09) and her Master’s in Education for special education leadership from the University of St. Thomas (‘15).

As principal, she brings to Tomball Intermediate a bilingual background in Spanish and English and experience as an administrator and teacher at both the campus and district level.

In her own words ...
What makes working in Tomball ISD so special?
“Although the Tomball community has grown significantly, Tomball ISD has successfully managed to maintain its small town, family atmosphere. There are so many students who graduated from Tomball ISD schools and now work in our district as principals, teachers, and support staff, which is simply remarkable! The connection that is created among the school staff, students, parents, and community is what makes Tomball ISD special.”

What are you looking forward to most about leading TIS this upcoming school year?
“I am honored to lead and serve the students and the community at Tomball Intermediate School this year and for many years to come. Engaging our parents in their children’s educational career is important, and I look forward to keeping the momentum for parental involvement and support throughout the school year. Most of all, I am looking forward to meeting each student and building relationships with each of them. The energy that you get from serving in a school is unquantifiable!”
