Joe Estrada, Principal
This year will mark my 17th year in education. I began my career in Houston ISD as a special education resource teacher. I also worked 10 years in Dallas ISD where I served as a sixth-grade math teacher, assistant principal, principal, and as a coordinator in the Office of School Leadership. Most recently, I served as the principal at Farine Elementary here in Irving ISD for more than 3 years.
I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston, and my master’s degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am also a product of Irving ISD so it is truly an honor to serve in the same community that I grew up in. I was a Townley Torchlighter, Bowie Cub, and a Nimitz Viking.
I am excited about the opportunity to join the team here at Keyes Elementary. I’m looking forward to partnering with the staff and community to grow every one of our Tiger Cubs. This is a great school that serves a great community, and we are going to continue doing amazing things at Keyes.
Rolando Negron, Assistant Principal
I’m proud and honored to be the Assistant Principal at Keyes Elementary and to serve our students, teachers, and community.
My career in education began in 2004 at J.R. Good Elementary as a 4th and 5th-grade bilingual science and math teacher. I also taught 4th-grade dual language science and math to GT students at Brandenburg Elementary and also had the wonderful opportunity to work as the Instructional Technology Specialist at Brandenburg.
I received a bachelor's degree in Biology from the Metropolitan University in Puerto Rico and a master’s degree in Educational Technology and Leadership from Lamar University. I have a son who is a senior at TWU who is my pride and joy.
It is my believe that every child is a unique individual who in order to learn and be successful, will need to be provided a stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.
When I'm not at work I enjoy endurance sports, trail running, camping, reading and spending time with my family and our dog Luna.
