Hello! My name is Sandra Maldonado and I am proud to be the Principal at Aikman Elementary School. This year begins 27 years working for HISD. I have been a principal for 17 years all here at Aikman. I was an Assistant Principal for four years, at Shirley Intermediate School. I began my teaching career at Hereford Junior High teaching 8th grade Algebra for six years. I have also taught Algebra night classes for Amarillo College. Teaching has always been my first love!
I obtained my Bachelor's degree from West Texas A&M University in Secondary Math and Spanish. I completed my Masters of Education in 1998 and later completed my Superintendent courses. I still enjoy learning!
I attended Aikman Elementary School when I was a child. Today, I am proud to be the Principal of the school where my dreams began. I am a product of Hereford High School and of this community. #Hereford Proud#
