Meet the Assistant Principal

James Otto



This will be my third year serving as an assistant principal of alternative education in CFBISD.  Year 20 in education (16 of those in CFBISD!!!) with the last 7 in administration at Long Middle School, and at RL Turner and Creekview High School. I was a teacher and coach at Long Middle School and Vivian Field Middle School.  As a teacher, I taught middle school social studies.

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State in History and my Master’s degree also from Lamar University in Educational Leadership.  I am currently pursuing my Doctoral in Educational Leadership from Lamar University as well.  I am happily married to my best friend who is an ESL teacher in McKinney. We have 3 boys and a bunch of animals. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and spending as much time as I can with my family. 

I am proud to serve as an administrator for Bea Salazar Learning Center.
