Meet the Director

Hello Varnett Family,

Children are the future and we must provide them with opportunities to cultivate their individual greatness.
It is with great pleasure that I serve as director of the Northeast campus. My name is Dr. Toron Wooldridge and I have been in education for 14 years. I graduated from Lamar High School in Houston. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University, where I was a linebacker for the Fighting Texas Aggie football team. I received my master’s degree from Prairie View A&M University and my doctorate from Texas A&M University.
I started my teaching career in Houston ISD as a behavioral teacher. During the last 10 years, I have served as an assistant principal, leadership coach, principal and superintendent intern in Lamar Consolidated ISD, Houston ISD, Beaumont and Fort Bend ISD. I have enjoyed collaborating with community stakeholders and providing a collaborative school environment that improves student achievement. I am a true champion of enhancing the school and community environment to meet the needs of scholars.
Throughout my career, I have established a reputation as a transformational leader who is driven by challenge, undeterred by obstacles, and committed to furthering standards of excellence. My expertise encompasses all aspects of educational administration. Further, my ability to build consensus among teams and students to promote transparency and influence positive change has been repeatedly proven. I look forward to bringing these strengths and more to the team at The Varnett Public School.
In closing, our campus is open to parents and the community. We welcome you to volunteer, attend our various events and even participate in calibrated educational walks on campus. We encourage you to partner in the premium educational experience that our organization provides students.
Thank you once again for allowing us to service your children and I look forward to a fantastic 2019-20 school year.
