Dr. Tamica Allen

I am Dr. Tamica Allen, and this is my 17th year as an educator. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Houston Clear-Lake. I simultaneously earned my master’s degree in education administration and principal certification from Concordia University Texas. I earned my Doctorate of Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University Texas.

Before joining Hutto ISD, I served as an elementary assistant principal in Austin ISD for eight years at two campuses. Prior to being an administrator, I was a reading specialist, third grade teacher and served on various committees. During my 13 years with Austin ISD, I have been honored as Teacher of Promise, Teacher of the Year (campus), and Assistant Principal of the Year (district nominee).

Most recently, I served as the behavior specialist for Hutto ISD for the past three years. This year, I am honored to begin serving as an assistant principal for Hutto High School (HHS). I am excited about collaborating with all HHS stakeholders to provide students with a rich learning experience focused on inspiring excellence in academics, character, and community.

Dr. Peter Price

My name is Pete Price and I am in my second year at Hutto High School. I thoroughly enjoy serving our students, staff, and families.

After graduating from Middlebury College in Vermont, I taught social studies and coached in New Hampshire, Belgium, and Eanes ISD. During that time, I took a year off to study at the University of the Philippines. I received my master’s degree in Educational Administration from UT-Austin and became an assistant principal in Round Rock ISD and later, a principal in Austin ISD. I then became the Austin ISD Director of Social and Emotional Learning, Cultural Proficiency and Inclusiveness, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, and Families as Partners. After earning my PhD from Texas State University, I served as the superintendent of Marathon ISD.

My educational philosophy leans heavily on this quote by William Spady: “All students can learn and succeed, but not in the same way and not on the same day.”  I truly believe that all really means ALL--we can’t leave any students behind. I am also passionate about providing our students with a holistic education; we must offer vibrant elective classes and extracurricular activities to allow students to shine outside of their core courses. In addition, we must provide students with opportunities to hone their social and emotional competencies, so they can develop fully as caring human beings, make ethical decisions, and be able to build meaningful relationships.
