Sara Rush
Principal
 
Dear Parents & Students,
 

I am the proud Principal of Oakcrest Intermediate.  I have been in a variety of secondary school roles since joining Tomball in 2013. I started as a Content Math Specialist before moving into campus administration. I spent four years as an Assistant Principal at Tomball Junior High before transitioning over to Creekside Park Junior High as Assistant Principal and then served as the Associate Principal over curriculum at Tomball High School. Prior to joining Tomball ISD, I spent time as a Director of Instruction Helping Teacher and as a classroom math teacher.

  

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Math Education from LSU (geaux tigers) and my Master’s degree in Educational Administration from Sam Houston State University.

 

My husband and I are both educators in Tomball and we are so proud to have our son attend Tomball schools. We are definitely a #teamtomball family.

Jessica Perez
 
Assistant Principal
 

Hello Wildcats!

 

I am Jessica Perez and I am so honored to serve as the Assistant Principal of Oakcrest Intermediate.  I was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley where I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and a master of education in educational administration.  My family and I relocated to the area about 14 years ago.  My husband Oscar and I have two children who attend Tomball schools.  I am also a dog mom of an amazing furry pup who has brought so much joy to our house hold.  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking our dog, visiting my family, reading a book, traveling, driving my kids to their extracurricular activities and yelling my heart out at the ball park. 

 

In my career, I have served as a BIL/ESL teacher, Content Specialist, Dual Language Program Coordinator and my most recent role as the Director of Multilingual Programs. I feel so fortunate that I get to bring all of those experiences and skills to Oakcrest Intermediate. 

 

I am pleased to serve you and look forward to meeting each and everyone of you!   Together we will make this a fantastic year! GO WILDCATS!
