Lana Whitworth

CES Principal

I have had the privilege of serving at Center Elementary for the past two years and look forward to my new position as Principal.  The bulk of my educational career has been in Joshua, Tx, (Ft Worth area) where I was a behavior, special education and 5th grade math teacher for 15 years and my husband and I raised our four children.  Five years ago we decided to move back to East Texas where we both grew up to be near aging parents. Since in the East Texas area, I have taught in Gary ISD and Marshall ISD where I was a math interventionist.  I currently live in Tenaha where my husband serves as the pastor at First Baptist Tenaha. I am all about family. My four grown children, their spouses and my granddaughter are the center of my world. My family is expanding with another grandson on the way in September (I can’t wait!).

My goal for CES is to continue in the excellence we have been enjoying. I want our students to feel safe, happy and loved.  I encourage a positive atmosphere and genuinely love what I do. I am excited to step into this role and lead our school with respect and lots of hugs! 2019-2020 is going to be a great year!
