Ms. Becky Whitton - SAES Principal

HI!  My name is Becky Wood Whitton and I am the Principal at San Augustine Elementary.  I have devoted 28 years to educating children. This school year will be my third year as Principal at San Augustine Elementary.  I'm honored to be leading our campus and working with the youth of our community.  Above all, I believe they are our first concern.
 Education has always played a vital role in my life.  I'm excited to be in San Augustine and working with the community, parents, and students of our great community.  Many of you that know me, know that I try to be fair to every child and will go above and beyond for our children. 
For those of you that don't know me,  I was raised here in San Augustine and graduated from San Augustine High School in 1983.  I earned my BS from Baptist Christian College and my Masters of Education from Stephen F. Austin State University.   I earned my Principal Certification through Stephen F. Austin State University.   I taught at San Augustine Elementary for 8 years then moved to West Sabine ISD for 16 years.  This is my 27th year in education.  
I have two children.  My son, Scott, is a 2005 SAHS graduate and lives here in San Augustine.  My daughter, Catherine, is a 2016 West Sabine High School graduate.  She is currently attending Stephen F. Austin and lives in Nacogdoches, Texas.  
I'm excited about working with some of my former students and their children.  It's great to be home!  It's going to be a great year!
