Jy'Syria D. Selmon, 7th Grade Assistant Principal

Greetings, Buccaneers!

I am Jy’Syria D. Selmon, and I am delighted to serve as your 7th Grade Assistant Principal this year.  I am a proud Mississippian turned Houstonian entering my 12th year in Education, seven of which have been right here at Bailey, so I believe it is safe to say that I am definitely “TEAM BAILEY”!  I have had the opportunity to serve in many roles as an educator including both a 6th and 8th grade ELAR teacher, teacher leader, testing coordinator, registrar, cheer coach, and student activities sponsor.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Southern Mississippi.  “Southern Miss to the Top!”  I moved here to Texas in 2013 after having taught for three years in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and I’ve been a proud Bailey Buccaneer ever since!

I am eager to work with each of you, and I am looking forward to an amazing year of growth and achievement at The Rickey C. Bailey School for Performing and Visual Arts.  In the words of our fearless leader, Principal Brown, we have to remember to “Pivot, not panic”, and when we feel as if we have nothing more to give, we must remember, “The show goes on.”  Go Bucs!

I am always available to each of you if needed.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
