School News

Hello Zilker Elementary Families,

Here are some school-related updates to get you all back in the swing of things.

NEW ZILKER ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

It is my pleasure to announce Hannah Hallmark as the new assistant principal of Zilker Elementary.  Hannah has been a teacher in AISD for the past eleven years where she taught Spanish at O’Henry Middle School. During her career in education,  Hannah has made it a priority to build strong relationships with all members of the school community and ensure her instruction supports the social, emotional, and academic development of each child. We are pleased to have her join our team at Zilker.

Congratulations to grade teacher, Tammy Thompson, who will be joining Baldwin Elementary as the new full-time assistant principal.  We are excited for her as she begins this new adventure in her career and wish her the very best in her new position. 

We have already started the process of finding a new third grade teacher and will work diligently to ensure a smooth transition in the process.
