Mrs. Tammy Arvie, Assistant Principal

Greetings, Eagle Family!

My name is Tammy Arvie. This is my 2nd year at Dueitt. Last year, I served as 8th Grade Counselor and previously, 6th Grade Counselor.  It is an awesome honor and privilege to serve in my new role as the 6th Grade Assistant Principal for Dueitt Middle School. I was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana. My family and I moved to Houston, TX in 1998. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Marcus Arvie for 32 years. We have two beautiful daughters, Celeste and Celina, who are both educators and two wonderful son-n-loves, Dominque and TJ. We are also blessed and proud to have two adorable grandchildren, Laila and Kalen, each will welcome a new sibling this year.

My educational background consists of over 20 years in education, which includes my service as a teacher, interventionist and counselor. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology from McNeese State University and my Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Education from the University of Houston-Downtown. My Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling was received at the University of St. Thomas and my Administrator’s Certification from Region IV-Inspire Texas.  In addition, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A), under the supervision of Bernice Mckenzie. LPC coursework was completed at Prairie View A & M University.  As a lifelong learner, I am passionate about education and supporting others to fulfill their goals. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, shopping, going to the movies, strolling in the park, trying new recipes and restaurants, serving at my church, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am excited about continuing to work with Dueitt family, staff, and the community. Come on Eagles, let’s S.O.A.R. together!

Dr. Federico Hernandez, Assistant Principal

I am Dr. Federico Hernandez, and I am proud to join the Dueitt team as the 7th Grade Assistant Principal. I am a proud father of four and husband to a wife who is a Kindergarten teacher. I was originally born in Mexico but raised here in Houston since the age of seven. This is my 25th year of serving in public education where I have spent 18 years teaching secondary mathematics and 7 years in administrative roles. As an administrator, I have served as a Dean of Instruction, Associate Principal, Principal, and presently as Assistant Principal here at Dueitt Middle School. I attended the University of Houston for my Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral programs. Additionally, I completed the Rice University Robert Noyce Fellowship program and the Executive Leadership program from Rice University School of Business and Leadership Partners. I believe that education is the key to our future and that by working together with students, teachers, parents/guardians, and community members, we can set up our students for success in academic achievement and for future endeavors. 

Together, we will guide our Eagles to soar on their path to reaching their academic as well as life goals.

Dr. Shamethia Dillard, Associate Principal

Welcome to #Eagle Country! I am Dr. Shamethia Dillard, your Associate and 8th Grade Principal. This will be my 3rd year at Dueitt Middle School. I am a native Houstonian, a mother of three, and am starting my 21st year of education. I have served in various leadership roles at the district level and as an administrator in elementary and middle schools. When I am not serving our Eagle community, I am either cheering LOUDLY at my kid's track meets and basketball tournaments or you can catch me hiking, dancing, and karaoke (although singing is not my talent)! I remain excited about seeing our teachers and students achieve their goals. My philosophy of education is: "All students can learn, as long as they have a teacher willing to teach them how they BEST learn."

With that said, let's make this a great year to SOAR Towards EXCELLENCE!
