Message from the Director

Greetings Southwest Family!
It is my pleasure to serve as the Principal of The Varnett School Southwest. My name is Tawanna Cheri, and I am a true educator at heart. I have served within KIPP Texas Public Schools as an Assistant Principal & Principal in Residence for 4 years. Beforehand, I served in Fort Bend ISD as an elementary school teacher, Math Instructional Coach, district task force representative, 3 time grant recipient, and Fund for Teachers Ambassador.
Entering into the field of education has always been my dream, launching me into receiving my Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education from Sam Houston State University, and my Master’s of Education Administration from Lamar University. With the three core values, Empower, Lead, and Serve, as my driving force, I believe that nurturing the whole child means tapping into students’ social and emotional beings to enhance their ability to become caring, courteous, and courageous enough to reach their full potential.
My most important and life changing role is my role as a wife and mom of 2. For fun, I enjoy reading, shopping, traveling, and spending time with people who edify my mental and spiritual well being.
I am ecstatic that you have chosen The Varnett Public School Southwest to nurture your child’s educational journey. I look forward to an amazing school year.
With Love & Zest,
Tawanna Cheri, M.Ed.
