My name is Deana Griffith. I am a Henderson native. I graduated from Henderson High School in 1981. I graduated from UT Tyler with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education in 1984. In 2002 I received my Master of Education degree from Texas A&M Texarkana. Along with my husband, Donny Griffith, my children DeLane and Drew are also HHS graduates.

My career in education began in 1984 at The Henderson Kindergarten as a kindergarten teacher. After spending nine years as an administrator in the Kilgore ISD I returned to HISD as principal of Wylie Primary School in 2016 .

At Wylie Primary School we realize that every child is unique in their own way. Each child grows at their own developmental level and each child comes from a family that has their own beliefs and values. I believe it is our responsibility to develop a positive relationship with our students and their families.

Our goal at WPS is to promote the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of each child. Since children learn by doing we believe that play should be the basis of a child’s learning.

As the American Proverb states: “Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow”. Wylie Primary School is growing mighty oaks!
