Northwest ISD has promoted Jeremy Martin to become principal of Tidwell Middle School, elevating a veteran assistant principal at the campus to the role. Mr. Martin replaces Ryan Barnhart, who recently accepted a leadership position in neighboring Liberty Christian School.

For the past three years, Mr. Martin has served as an assistant principal at Tidwell, serving as the coordinator of campus testing, at-risk programs, and gifted and talented programs. Mr. Martin also contributed to master schedule planning and has served as a district strategic planning team member. He joined Northwest ISD in 2015 as an elementary classroom teacher before becoming an instructional technology coach in 2018, a role he held for four years.

Mr. Martin said he’s eager to work with students, staff and families to continue to maintain and build upon the strong community foundation upheld at the school.

“From my time at Tidwell Middle School, it’s apparent that our amazing staff strives to create solid relationships with our community to enhance student success, which is the culture I hope to continue fostering,” he said. “I strongly believe in the development of students through inspiring and modeling an atmosphere of lifelong learning through high expectations, and I look forward to partnering with our community to ensure every student meets his or her goals.”

Prior to joining Northwest ISD, Mr. Martin served as a teacher in Houston ISD for six years, educating students at both the elementary and secondary levels.

In addition to his work in the classroom, Mr. Martin has assisted others professionally as a presenter at multiple development conferences, including the Texas Computer Education Association. Additionally, as part of his leadership development at Northwest ISD, he has completed the district’s LEAD training program.

Mr. Martin earned his master’s degree in educational leadership and administration from the University of North Texas and his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Stephen F. Austin University.
