TAMMY HARVEY – DEAN OF STUDENTS
BS in Biology from Tarleton State University
MS in Animal Science (Ruminant Nutrition) from Texas Tech University
Counselor and Principal Certificate from Tarleton State University
I am on my 23rd year in public education. I started at Olton ISD as a teacher and coach. I spent five years there before going to Eula ISD. I was a teacher, coach, and counselor for five years at Eula. I then became the counselor at Madison MS for three years, and then an assistant principal for four years. Merkel ISD was my next stop (four years) where I served as the MS principal, curriculum and instruction director, and the elementary principal for the last two years. I came back to Abilene ISD about a year and a half ago, and now serve as the dean of students at ATEMS. As an educator, I believe we should be caring, collaborative, and consistent in dealing with students, parents, and peers. I truly believe I was called to work with young people, and see it as a being in service of them.
