Paul LeBlanc


Dear Parents & Students,


Welcome to Oakcrest Intermediate School!  I am Paul LeBlanc, and I am honored to serve as Principal of OIS.  I am a native of southeast Texas.  I grew up in Bridge City, Texas where I enjoyed water recreational activities and also played saxophone in Band.  After high school I attended Lamar University where I started as a music education major for band where I also  met my wife.  After two years I changed my major and graduated with a B.S. in Psychology.  I completed my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Sam Houston State University.  I have been a special education teacher, as well as held both campus-level and central office-level administrative positions.  My favorite times have been working with children at the middle level.  My wife and I are both career educators as she is an intermediate school principal in Conroe ISD. I am extremely blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Oakcrest community and look forward to sharing in the success of your children!

I am so excited to be the Assistant Principal at OIS!! I look forward to meeting each and everyone one of you! I am originally from a small town in Texas, and graduated from Texas A & M University in 2005 with a double major in business marketing and management. WHOOP! After working in the business world, I decided to go back to school because my real passion in life is teaching! In May 2010, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a master's degree in Instructional Leadership and a minor in Instructional Technology. I also obtained my principal certification. This will be my 13th year in education and my 12th year in Tomball ISD.  


I enjoy golfing, fishing, spending time with my family, traveling and playing with my dog, Allie.  It is my privilege to work with students, parents, and staff at Oakcrest Intermediate where relationships are built through teamwork and collaboration. I'm looking forward to a great year!!
