Ms. Becky Whitton - SAES Principal

HI!  My name is Becky Wood Whitton and I am the Principal at San Augustine Elementary.  I have devoted 27 years to educating children.  Education has always played a vital role in my life.  I'm excited to be back in San Augustine and working with the community, parents, and students of our great community.  Many of you that know me,knows 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 taught at San Augustine Elementary for 7 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 with his wife, Marilee.  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!
