Christa Smyder is moving across town to be the new assistant principal at Harrison Intermediate. Smyder previously was the assistant principal at Davis Intermediate School. She replaces Melissa True who is the newly named principal at Achieve Academy.

Smyder has worked as a special education teacher in Community ISD, three years at Dodd Elementary and six years at Davis Intermediate.

“I have a passion to help each child reach their potential through goal setting and relationship building,” she said. “ I want to be part of ensuring each student has both educational and social successes throughout their lifetime.”

Smyder is excited to meet and build relationships with the Harrison student, staff and parents.

“I will work closely with Principal Gilmore-Madkins to ensure that the district vision is achieved,” she said.

Smyder has a bachelors degree from Ouachita Baptist University and a masters from Hardin-Simmons University.

Smyder lives in Wylie with her husband Geoff and two children, Emily and Lizzy.

“Wylie has been home to our family one way or another for 20 years,” she said. “My husband and I both went away to college but came back to Wylie because it was home.”
