Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD is pleased to announce that Beth Epps, currently serving as Principal of Dozier Elementary School, has been named Director of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support. This is a new position within the EMS ISD Special Programs Department that will lead implementation of tiered support strategies and interventions for students.
Epps has been in EMS ISD for seven years, serving four years as the principal of Parkview Elementary and opening Dozier Elementary as the principal three years ago. She has 24 years of experience serving students in Texas public schools. Prior to coming to EMS, she taught in Lubbock ISD for eight years and served as an administrator in Frenship ISD for nine years.
She received her bachelor’s degree of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and Mathematics and her master’s degree in Educational Administration from Lubbock Christian University. Epps has a passion for helping each student and teacher succeed, and is excited to take on the role of helping each child in EMS succeed through the Response to Intervention (RtI) process.
She has three children — ages 13, 16, and 19 — who all attend or graduated from EMS ISD schools. In her free time, Epps stays busy supporting her children in their various activities and reading.
Epps will transition to her new role as director over the summer but will continue to serve at Dozier until a new principal is named.
