A Message from Mr. Trammell
Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community:
It is a great honor to serve all of you as the Principal at the LISD DAEP campus. Each
day, I am privileged to work with the dedicated staff to continually shape the lives of our
students. Our goal at DAEP is to create an educational experience that centers around
each student’s needs. With input from all stakeholders, students thrive as they achieve
their daily goals.
Our culture at DAEP allows us to celebrate success and learn from failure in a safe and
nurturing environment. We are driven to innovate and inspire every learner each day.
We teach, coach, instruct and mentor with a sense of urgency. Most importantly, we
recognize that education is about the journey, not the destination.
I can’t be more proud of the accomplishments of the DAEP campus and the hard work
of the staff and students. If there is anything that I can do to be of service to you, your
family, your cause or your mission, please don’t hesitate to ask.
William L. Trammell, Jr.
