Eagle Strong: Building a Foundation of Success

Meet the Assistant Principals

Yolanda Rodriguez-Pacheco

I am returning to Bastrop after three years.  The last three years that I have been away, I spent at Hays CISD as an Assistant Principal at Blanco Vista Elementary in San Marcos. It feels great to be home after being away!


I was born and raised in Mexico and my family moved to Chicago when I was in 2nd grade.  My bachelor’s degree is from Northeastern Illinois University and my master’s in Education from the University of Illinois in Chicago.  I obtained my principal’s certification from Concordia University-Texas.  I began my teaching experience in Chicago, IL as a 5-8th grade science teacher. I worked for Chicago Public Schools for four years then moved to Texas. I then worked as a 5th grade bilingual teacher for five years at CCIS.  I loved being in the classroom and in my heart I’ll always consider myself a teacher first.  


My leadership style is to facilitate an ongoing, open dialogue that maintains student achievement at the forefront.  Building relationships is at the core of my beliefs; for students, staff, parents and community partnerships.  I look forward to getting to know you so we can work as a team in continued success for all CCIS students.


Please stop by the CCIS office next time you are on campus and say hello!

I am excited about starting another school year at CCIS!  Go Eagles!!
I grew up in Giddings, TX and moved to Huntsville to attend Sam Houston State after graduating top 10% of my class from GHS.  I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Academic Studies with a minor in mathematics in 2005.  I started working at CCIS as a math teacher and have worked here for eleven years.  I earned my Masters degree from Lamar University in Administration with hopes of becoming a Principal one day.  
I love the staff and students here at CCIS and am very excited to be Assistant Principal.
