Mr. Matt Brennan

Welcome to the Era ISD Secondary Principal's Page.  I am very excited to serve as Principal for this wonderful school as we seek to return to a sense of normalcy after an unusual time in education.  As we hopefully leave the COVID years behind us we will be looking to grow as a school community.  With that in mind, our theme this year will focus on a growth mindset for each of our learners, looking to meet them where they are and move them to the next level of their academic journey.  Parents will be an integral part of that process.  Please don't hestitate to contact the school and take a key role in your student's learning!

The 2021-2022 school year marks my 8th year in education and first assignment as Principal.  Before being named Principal of Era Secondary School, I taught Social Studies and English for Lindsay High School where I was also the UIL Coordinator and Student Council sponsor.  Before beginning my career in education I spent almost ten years working in retail management where I gained valuable skills that served me as an educational leader and will continue to serve me as Principal.  Excluding my college years, I have lived in Cooke County my entire life and am excited to serve the community of Era.

French writer Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr in 1849 said, "The more things change, the more they stay the same."  While there may be some new faces and changes on the Era ISD administration team this year, this team is committed to providing the same high quality education with the same small town values that make Era a great community. Please let me know if there is something I can do to support your child's learning.
