Mrs. Lara Utecht
I am excited to join the Rountree family this year as the Principal. This is my 17th year in education. Prior to joining Rountree, I was a 6th grade math teacher, Campus Intervention Specialist, and Assistant Principal at Kerr Elementary. I started my education career at Schrade Middle School in Garland ISD where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and coached 7th and 8th grade girls basketball and track. My education includes a Bachelors of Business Management from Texas Tech University and a Masters of Education from Texas A&M Commerce.
My husband Rhyan and I have been married for 13 years. We are blessed with two daughters Amanda and Sarah. I enjoy sports and reading. I also love to watch Texas Tech sports, especially Red Raider football.
I am looking forward to having a great 2019-2020 school year.
Lara Utecht, Principal
