• Bearcat Pride  
    Hello Bearcat Family,
    I am pleased to be the 6th grade Principal at Ross Sterling Middle School. This is my fourth year putting Kids First as a Bearcat Administrator. I have 14 years of experience in education, with five of those years in Humble ISD as a proud Humble High School Wildcat and three as a proud Ross Sterling Bearcat.   During my time at Humble High School, I was the Instructional Coach/ Academic Lead Teacher for Science.  I am excited to continue nurturing students in the Humble High School feeder pattern.
    As the saying goes, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could". I hail from the palmetto state of South Carolina, where I received my BS in Biology from Lander University. I received my M.Ed in Education from Prairie View A&M University and am I currently working on my doctorate. My husband and I are proud parents of two high school students in Humble ISD.
    Education is my passion and my goal is to develop our students into life-long learners that will grow to be future leaders in our community and the world.  I have every confidence that our Ross Sterling Middle School team will be diligently working to put Kids First in all that we do in order to see them become successful.
    I look forward to watching the class of 2025 grow in height, maturity, and academically.  I know that they will be the pride of Ross Sterling Middle School. I am excited to work with all of you this school year.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  This will be the best year yet! 
    Veonda Emholtz, M.Ed
