KATY (Covering Katy News) – Katy Independent School District Superintendent Lance Hindt appointed Steve Guzzetta as the new principal of McMeans Junior High on Westheimer Parkway near South Fry Road in Cinco Ranch. He will be replacing Dr. Susan Rice who is retiring.
“I am very excited to continue the success and traditions that have been established at McMeans Junior High,” said Guzzetta. “I opened the school as a teacher and coach before becoming an administrator there so I already have a deep connection with the community and a passion for the success of the students,” added Guzzetta.
Mr. Guzzetta has an extensive level of experience that includes 24 years with Katy ISD. He began his career in 1994 as a history teacher and a coach at Katy Junior High.
In 1995, he moved to Katy High School and taught geography and coached for five years.
In 2000, he transferred to McMeans where he taught for two years prior to being promoted to assistant principal.
Four years later he was named the curriculum principal at McMeans and he served in that capacity until 2007 when he was named assistant principal at Taylor High School.
In 2015, he was promoted to associate principal and has remained in that position for the past three years.
Mr. Guzzetta holds a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M University and a Masters of Education in Educational Administration from Prairie View A&M.
Mr. Guzzetta joins MMJH on June 18.
