Ms. Autrey is a member of the Inaugural Cohort of the Ferris ISD Principal Residency. This Principal Residency is a partnership between Ferris ISD and Dallas Baptist University, funded by a grant from the Texas Education Agency, that allows teachers to take the steps toward becoming a certified campus administrator. This immersive internship allows our five cohort members to earn a tuition-free Master of Education in Educational Leadership Degree and Principal Certification in one year while serving as a paid administrative intern on our campuses. Ms. Autrey previously taught 4th grade at McDonald Elementary and Ferris Intermediate, and has been a Human Resources administrator. She is the proud mother of Hunter, Ty, Easton, and Logan and loves supporting them in their FFA, Baseball, and Golf events. Her amazing boyfriend, Brian, is a lineman for Oncor.
Ms. Autrey will be assisting Mr. Hawkins, Mrs. Velasquez, and Mrs. Murphy in the daily administrative tasks for McDonald Elementary.
