Mrs. Leigh Ann McCurdy-Prieto, School Secretary

Hello, my name is Leigh Ann Prieto. I am from Hialeah, Florida. I came to Houston when I was 8 years old. I have been with Spring ISD since 2004. My first year I worked at Ponderosa Elementary as a Pre-K/Kinder bilingual aide. I transfered to Burchett Elementary when the school opened in 2005 working in the workroom. Then in 2006, I was promoted to be their receptionist. I was in that position from August 2006 - February 2018. Now, I am the principal’s secretary here at Anderson. I really enjoy working here and being a part of the Anderson Gator Family.

I have been married for 21 years to my husband and we have 2 GREAT children. My son is 26 and has graduated from Texas A&M University Kingsville as a Natural Gas Engineer with a minor in math. My daughter is 20 and is starting her 3rd year of college this year at Texas A&M University Kingsville and is studying Kinesiology/PPT (Pre-Physical Therapy). We also have a sweet 8 year old maltese named Boston that we love very much!

I love road trips, listening to music, spending time with my family and watching Hallmark movies.

My name is Rhonda Bonwell and this is my second year as an Anderson Gator and fourth year in Spring ISD. I came to Anderson as a substitute teacher, then was hired as the Campus Textbook Coordinator, and I am currently the Receptionist. I spent 8 years teaching pre-K in a private school and 3 years as a substitute in Spring ISD elementary schools.

I have been married for 16 years to my super supportive husband and we have 3 amazing children.

Alexander is 12, starting the 7th grade at Knox Jr. High, and plays 1st, 3rd and center field for his year-around select baseball team. Emma Grace is 11, in the 6th grade at Collins Intermediate, and plays the clarinet in her school band. We are also the parents to a 7 year old, 80lb yellow lab/boxer mix who swears she’s a lap dog and has us all wrapped around her giant paw. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, fishing, and road trips with my family.

I am looking forward to another great year with our wonderful Anderson Gators and our incredible Front Office Team!

Mrs. Renita Corpus, SIMS Clerk

Hello! My name is Renita Corpus. I have been working at Anderson Elementary since 2007. For 2 years, I was a substitute Special Education aide. In 2009, I was hired on as a Pre-K aide and then went back into the Special Education department to work with children with Autism. It was an amazing experience that lasted for 7 years, until I became the textbook coordinator. I was the textbook coordinator for 2 years and this year I became the SIMS Clerk.

I have been married for 31 years. My “Gator” status began in 1995, when my oldest daughter, Brittany, started kindergarten at Anderson. Then my daughter Courtney started kindergarten in 1998, followed by my youngest daughter, Tiffany, in 2003. During those years, I spent many hours volunteering and being a Homeroom Mom. All of my daughters went on to become graduates of Spring High School. My family also includes 4 dogs. One is very special to me because in 2012, I rescued him from underneath one of our portable buildings here at Anderson, where he was found starving and freezing. Of course, I had to name him Gator.

In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, go camping, take road trips, and spend time outdoors enjoying nature or being anywhere near water. I am looking forward to a great year!
