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.
