Hoyland Elementary School

Spring Independent School District

Welcome Message


    GonzalezLeticia Gonzalez - Principal

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Leticia Gonzalez and I have the pleasure of working with the amazing students and staff at Hoyland Elementary until the end of the school year. I have served as a 4th and 5th grade teacher, assistant principal and principal in Alice ISD for 22 years before moving to Spring ISD in 2004 to serve as principal at Cooper Elementary. Cooper was my home until 2019 when I moved to the Administration Building where I currently serve on the School Improvement Team. I have been married for 41 years, have two adult children who have blessed me with 5 beautiful grandchildren. Besides being a grandmother, being a principal is one of the most rewarding roles I have ever served in. The opportunity to work with students and build relationships with them brings joy to my heart!

    My first two days as a Hoyland Pioneer have been a whirlwind! Our children have been very kind and accepting of me. I have enjoyed getting to know them and listening to their stories. I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with you and your children.

    Howdy Family,

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, we have so much work to do and I am ecstatic to get right to it! I’m eager to have the opportunity to meet you and work alongside each of you. It will be a part of our daily frame to ensure that our students get the quality education they deserve.

    I believe in the old African Proverb “It takes a village” to ensure that our students are successful. I relocated back to Texas a year ago! Before that I spent 11 years educating scholars in Denver, Colorado!  I have over 16 years of working experience as an educator.

    When I am away from school, I enjoy time with my family and our horses. I am the proud father of an amazing 11-year-old son. We have 2 pretty awesome horses (Dynamite 53 and Gucci)!

    Below you will find a link to a professional development video that I was featured in when I was a classroom teacher. This video will give you a little insight to my personality, and who I was as a teacher-leader!

    I am truly committed to the success of our Hoyland Scholars. I look forward to having an amazing school year!

  •      Over the last 2 years - our students, staff, families, and school community overcame so many adversities as a result of COVID-19.  We all did what was necessary to provide our students with the support they deserved and the educational experiences they needed to continue their development as effective learners. 

    Requiring all of us to grow in ways we never expected.

           Quickly becoming an opportunity to really find out what our students needed and discover innovative ways that would allow them to learn more effectively.  The tremendous growth Hoyland made as an educational organization and the accomplishments of our scholars made during this time, was noticed.  Hoyland Elementary is now one of the first elementary campuses to be awarded the New Spring ISD Blended Learning Innovator Designation and implement a new laptop 1:1 program PK-5th specifically for our campus.

    How is this different compared to what Hoyland was doing already?

    Essentially, Hoyland Elementary Scholars will no longer be participating in the District’s Digital Learning Student Device program which was implemented to support our district’s previous PBL and Virtual Learning programs.  Which technology was just the tool being used to teach students in the same ways they were while in the classroom.  The Hoyland Elementary new Blended Learning Innovator program on the other hand focuses on the many ways technology can be leveraged to provide students with a more authentic learning experience, help shift teaching practices, and improve instructional delivery while in the classroom to more effectively meet the individual needs of each student.
