Principal's Corner


I am honored and excited to join The Meadows Elementary and the DeSoto ISD community as your new principal. It is my personal mission to motivate, encourage, and drive each and every member of our campus community including all faculty, staff, teachers and students. The Meadows Elementary is bursting with great potential to far exceed expectations. We will produce learners who refuse to be average and are capable of demonstrating that they are college and career ready. 

As Plato realized, "the beginning is the most important part of the work, "I too must be systematic about my entry to effectively lead DeSoto ISD.  As we begin our journey in the days ahead please know that I desire your input as we move toward becoming a top school district. Together we can and will rise to the top because our commitment to joining forces as a united school community, declaring that the students of The Meadows Elementary receive the best educational experience possible. 

"Good, Better, Best! Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. The best is yet to come!"

In partnership,

Leon Darden
