I am excited to serve Lake Air Montessori Magnet as an Assistant Principal for the 2019-2020 school year. I am beginning my 18th year in education and 10th year at Lake Air Montessori. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide a safe, child focused environment that creates experiences and opportunities that students otherwise would not have. 

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”  ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

After spending the last six years as Assistant Principal at Crestview Elementary, I am excited to return to Lake Air Montessori where my educational journey began 14 years ago when I made a career change and began teaching middle school math, science and high school Algebra.

My wife, Jo, is a functional academics teacher and is starting her 23rd year, all at Lake Air Montessori. Together, we have one son, Caleb, who is currently a sophomore at Texas Tech University. Caleb also attended Lake Air Montessori from Pre-K through 8th grade. 

Going into the school year, I look forward to establishing and building relationships with all our students, parents and community members as I believe wholeheartedly in the African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  

My approach to education is simple as I look at each student as if he or she is my own. After all, as parents, we all want what is best for our child. I want to see every student challenged so that they may reach their potential and be a happy, productive member of society. Lastly, I want our students, families, and staff to know that I am here to help and assist. If there is ever any question, concern or suggestion that you may have, please do not hesitate in contacting me. You can contact me at Adam.Lackey@wacoisd.org or 254-772-1910. I freely give my cell number so if you want it, please ask.  Again, I am here to assist, and I look forward to a wonderful school year!
