Mr. Everette Taylor

Dear J.H. Hines Parents,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself to you as newly appointed Principal of J.H. Hines Elementary School. I am honored to become a part of the Transformation Waco and J. H. Hines community, which has already given me such a warm welcome! In just the few interactions I’ve had with staff and families so far, it’s become abundantly clear that this school is a unique and special place.

Since the appointment, I have been spending much of my time planning the transition to Waco.  I’ve had the opportunity to visit the school and look forward to getting to know the staff, students and school community, and familiarizing myself with the Transformation Waco School Improvement Goals. 

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 23 years. My educational experience has included being a teacher, A.P., and a principal for the past 12 years.  During my leadership career, I’ve had the opportunity to develop partnerships, create a positive school culture and implement programs to meet the needs of students. I am elated to bring my skills as an instructional leader to J. H. Hines Elementary and to work with you as a partner to ensure every student’s success.

Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to foster a tradition of excellence at J H Hines Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students and community. We will continue to focus on Positive Behavior Supports, data driven instruction, and exciting and challenging experiences for all students.  The educational program will provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of students; it will be rigorous and engaging to promote students to become life-long learners. 

As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – teachers, students and parents – are excited to be here! The positive attitude and culture will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I look forward to working together to provide an outstanding learning experience for every child.



Everette Taylor
