Lewisville ISD (LISD) announced June 28 the appointment of Stephanie Gore as the new principal of Huffines Middle School

“I’m humbled and honored to join the Huffines family as the new principal,” Gore said. “I look forward to serving the community and building a love for learning alongside an incredible staff.” 

Gore currently serves as an assistant principal at Lewisville High School Main Campus, a position she has held for 10 years. She takes over for current Huffines principal Estella Rupard, who recently accepted a position in the district’s central administration.

Gore has been a member of the LISD family for 19 years. She spent nine years teaching and coaching at DeWitt Perry Middle School in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD before joining Lewisville ISD for the 2002-03 school year as an assistant principal at McKamy Middle School before moving to LHS in 2010.

“Mrs. Gore is a dedicated and student-focused leader,” Superintendent of Schools Kevin Rogers said. “She brings a wealth of experience to the role, and I’m certain Huffines students and staff will continue to thrive under her leadership.”

As an assistant principal at LHS, Gore initiated campus-based recognition programs for students and staff, launched Farmer Friends where students of various campus organizations visit feeder school events, and evolved the English as a Second Language program styling to allow students to remain in classrooms to receive more instructional time.

A graduate of Texas Tech University, Gore received her Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies. She also earned a Master of Education in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas. Her certifications include Principal (EC-12) and Elementary Self-Contained.

Gore and her husband, Jason, reside in the LISD community and have a daughter entering her sophomore year at LHS.

Prior to being named assistant principal at Brinker Elementary, Girlinghouse served as the assistant principal at Aldridge Elementary and Carlisle Elementary in Plano ISD. She also spent eight years teaching for Louisiana public schools.
