Education: Bachelors in Music Education/Elementary Education, West Texas State University (now West Texas A & M University) Masters in Educational Administration, University of Texas at Tyler.


I began my teaching career in Amarillo ISD and have taught a variety of grades and subjects. After taking off several years to stay home with my 3 children, I continued my teaching career and am about to begin my 24th year in education. I have been in administration since 2013. I have been married over 30 years to my college sweetheart and have 3 grown children that have degrees from ASU, Texas A & M and TCU. Our oldest daughter married a San Angelo native and in 2013 we re-located to the area to be able to spend as much time as possible with our grandchildren.

I look forward to helping your child be a successful student! -Johnny Rumph
