We're excited to introduce STEM's new principal! "My name is Aimee Vinten and I am honored to serve the families, students, and staff as the principal of Manara STEM Academy for the 2022-2023 school year. My educational journey has spanned the past 22 years, with teaching Pre-K, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th grades. I have taught all content areas, with the duration of my teaching focus in the upper elementary and middle school grades of math and science. I graduated from Ball State University in 1996 with a degree in Elementary Education, and obtained my master’s degree from UTA in 2016 in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. The past three years I have been an assistant principal at Life School Carrollton, serving students, families, and staff on a K-6 campus. My passion is servant leadership, loving to give, learn, and grow with my community as I not only lead but also learn from those around me. Being family-oriented is also another factor important to me, and spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do. My husband and I have been married for 24 years and we have two daughters. Our oldest daughter, Emma, just graduated from Texas A&M University in Galveston this past May with a degree in Marine Biology. She is currently interning at the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network in Galveston. Our youngest daughter, Belle, also attends Texas A&M University in Galveston and is majoring in Marine Biology, with her sights set on being a coastal game warden or work in the field of marine ecology. Having lived in Texas for only 8 years and with our girls going to A&M in Galveston, we have quickly become A&M football fans and always look forward to football season! As a family we love spending time camping, time on the beach, or watching different sporting events. I personally also love running and just being outdoors! I look forward to building a rapport with each student, family, and staff member throughout this upcoming school year. This year is sure to be one of great continued growth of our students through our partnership together. Please let me know how I can serve you and your family throughout the 2022-2023 school year!"
