Principal Kristi Traylor
To my T.W. Ogg family!! I am so happy to be your new principal and wanted to let you know a few things about me. I am married to Robert Traylor and have two children, Michael (19) and Katie (15). I started my educational career 23 years ago as an 8th grade math teacher at Freeport Intermediate School after graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University. I obtained my Master’s degree from the University of Houston – Victoria in Administration and Supervision to become an Assistant Principal and eventually Principal at FIS as well. As a teacher and administrator, I believe it is important to set high achievement standards for our students. Failure is not an option and I will, along with my teachers, do “Whatever it Takes” for your children to be successful at our school. I’m looking forward to working with each of you to make it a FANTASTIC year in the Land of Ogg!
Assistant Principal, Kimberly Ziehl
Hi there! This is my second year as the Assistant Principal at T.W. Ogg Elementary and I am so happy to be back! T.W. Ogg is a wonderful campus with great traditions. My goal every day is to build supportive relationships in a school community where everyone has the opportunity to be successful! As for a bit about me, I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Business and my Master’s in Public School Administration from New Mexico State University. I am married to Clint Ziehl who is the CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Brazoria County. It is because of his job we move to this wonderful community almost three years ago. I was a teacher for 9 years before becoming an Assistant Principal and spent 5 of those as an elementary music teacher in Las Cruces, New Mexico and 3 years as a 5th grade teacher in small town in west Texas named Snyder. I was a Math interventionist for one year at Clute Intermediate before being hired as an Ogg Twister! In addition to my husband, we have two dogs… Halas a Dalmatian and Addie a Sheltie who are best friends. We have enjoyed every minute living here in the area! Please let me know if you need any assistance while your student is here at T.W. Ogg!
