Oak Hill Elementary School Welcomes New Principal

Oak Hill Elementary School welcomed incoming principal Lori Komassa this week with a meet-and-greet reception and a special assembly at the school. 

Komassa was hired to replace outgoing principal Cathryn Mitchell, who accepted a position at Gorzycki Middle School. 

Komassa previously served as assistant principal of Odom Elementary School and joins Oak Hill with broad experience as a reading specialist and elementary teacher in the Austin and Eanes independent school districts.

She has a thorough knowledge of curriculum and instruction and has a history of providing professional development for teachers to ensure that the needs of children are effectively addressed.

She promotes excellence in teaching and learning by being a strong and visible presence on campus. 

"I'm happy to take on this role. The Oak Hill school community is strong, focused and energized," she said. "My goal is to ensure a smooth transition and to continue to build a community focused on student success."

Komassa begins in her official capacity at Oak Hill Elementary in early June.
