Meet the Assistant Principal

Assistant Principals

James Otto


Welcome to all students and parents!


This will be my second year serving as an assistant principal of alternative education in CFBISD.  This is year 19 in education (15 of those in CFBISD!!!) with the last 5 in administration at Long Middle School, and at RL Turner and Creekview High School. I was a teacher and coach at Long Middle School and Vivian Field Middle School.  As a teacher, I taught middle school social studies.

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State in History and my Master’s degree from Lamar University in Educational Leadership.  I am currently pursuing my Doctoral in Educational Leadership from Lamar University as well.  I will be marrying my best friend soon. She is a teacher in McKinney. We have 2 boys (soon to be 3) and enjoy hiking and spending time with family.

I am proud to serve as an administrator for both the Mary Grimes Education Center and the Bea Salazar Learning Center
