Heather Piñero Named Assistant Principal of McClure Elementary

MISD is happy to announce that Heather Piñero has been named assistant principal of McClure Elementary! Piñero brings 6 years of experience in education—all with MISD—to her new leadership role.

“We are beyond excited to welcome Mrs. Heather Piñero to our McClure family,” said Principal Matt Arend. “Her knowledge of McKinney ISD, balanced with her desire to support students and teachers—along with creating a fun learning atmosphere—will add to the strong culture already established at McClure. Mrs. Piñero will be an excellent example of what being a McClure Marshal is all about.”

Piñero began her career in 2014 as a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Webb Elementary. Over the past 6 years, she has served the campus in a variety of capacities including the role of team leader and, most recently, as an instructional coach.

Her time as an instructional coach afforded Piñero the opportunity to support teachers in a variety of areas including curriculum and instruction, professional growth and development, mentoring, data analysis and creating a positive culture on campus. During her tenure in MISD, she has also served as co-coordinator for student council, secretary for the Bilingual/ESL Education Association of the Metroplex and as a member of the district curriculum writing teams for both English Language Arts and Reading and Mathematics.

Piñero earned her bachelor’s degree in 2012 from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2017, she earned her master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of North Texas.

She is grateful that her experience in MISD has led her to the McClure family.

“It is truly an honor to be able to serve the dedicated staff members, students, families and community members at McClure Elementary,” said Piñero. “I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning!”
