EJH assistant principal goes to Travis

When EJHS Assistant Principal Ryan McCabe becomes principal at Travis Elementary this fall, his priorities will remain the same: doing what is best for the students and helping them succeed.
Although the students at Travis are younger and may need a different type of encouragement, McCabe said he would still be able to apply the same outlook in his dealings with students.
“The main difference between the junior high and elementary will be the size of the kids,” McCabe said. “I will still follow my main concept of respecting and loving the kids no matter what age they are. The philosophy at any level that one needs to always keep in mind is ‘what is best for the students’ or ‘how can I make them successful?’”
McCabe compared the roles of teachers and administrators to those of parents. Sometimes decisions are fun and easy to make, and sometimes decisions are hard, he said.
“Pretty much every decision I make has some way of effecting a kid’s success,” McCabe said. “We keep in mind what is best for the kids.
McCabe is currently working with Travis Principal Steve Huff to ensure the transition between principals goes smoothly. Huff is retiring in June after several years with Ennis ISD. Just like all principals, McCabe said he hopes for the best for the school and wants to make sure it is reaching its potential.
