When it rains, I guess, it pours!! Something from Jim Parsons Executive Director for Accountability. Here is some info for you:
A email just doesn’t seem enough, but it’s about the only way I have right now of sharing some news with you. I have resigned from Humble ISD, effective June 30. I start a new job at the University of Texas at Dallas the next day.
I have accepted the position of Assistant Director of the Texas Schools Project and the UT-Dallas Education Research Center. My responsibilities will include expanding the Education Research Center data warehouse, strengthening and expanding research and data sharing relationships with Texas schools districts, managing data standardization and documentation, and directing the evaluation unit of the TSP.
As you may imagine, this is a dream job for me. I’ll have an unbelievable huge set of TinkerToys, and quite a few researchers in Dallas and around the country to join me in playing with them.
1. I will miss you.
2. Remember that I-45 runs both ways! We’ll still be involved in Texas public schools, and we’ll certainly keep in touch with our friends in Humble.
I hope to have the chance to visit between now and the end of June. I look forward to seeing you before we head our various directions.
Thank you all for the experiences we have shared over the years. You have all given me so much.
All the best.
Executive Director for Accountability

Good luck my friend, you will be missed!
