Plains ISD would like to welcome Crystal Williamson to our secondary campus. She will be our new 7th and 8th grade English teacher. #plainsproud Bio My name is Crystal Williamson. I am the proud wife of Gary Williamson Jr. and mom to three beautiful daughters. While I did not grow up in Texas as an Ohio native, the sand in west Texas got in my shoes and I never want to leave. My family and I have been living in Denver City the past eight years. We have enjoyed regular visits to Plains to swim and eat at Dairy Queen. In education I am a unique overachiever that has graduated with a high school equivalency twice. I started college at the age of 36 with the sole purpose of becoming an English teacher. I attained my BA in English from the University of Phoenix and am currently working toward my Master of Arts in Education. I have worked the last three years in Denver City ISD. Two of those years in SPED and one teaching sixth-grade English. I look forward to being part of the amazing team here in Plains ISD!
Plains ISD would like to introduce our new head boys basketball coach, Jordan Elam to Plains. #plainsproud Bio: I am Jordan Elam. I have been married to my wife, Reagan, for seven years, and we have a four-year-old son named Beckett. I went to high school in Denver City, graduated from Texas Tech University with my bachelor’s degree in History, and subsequently earned my master’s degree in Secondary Education from Lubbock Christian University. While at LCU, I was able to begin my coaching career by assisting the men’s basketball program as a Graduate Assistant and JV coach. Since that time, I have spent the last nine years in education with stops at Midland Legacy for a year and Levelland for the past eight years. In 2018, I was able to assume the boys’ head coach position at Levelland and had been in that role for the last four seasons. During that time, I also taught US History and was the Social Studies department chair at the high school. I have been fortunate enough to experience success on the court, making the playoffs in each season, including a trip to the Regional Finals in 2019. Even so, I feel being an educator and coach is a true calling, one that I am proud to be a part of. Coming from a coaching family myself, I saw the value in this profession at an early age and have always wanted to make a positive impact in bettering the lives of young people. My family and I are beyond grateful for the opportunity we have in front us and are so excited to be joining the Plains family!
Plains ISD would like to welcome Ashley Cunningham to our secondary and coaching staff. She has been hired to be our 7th/8th Grade Science teacher and Coach JH girls athletics. Welcome to Plains! #plainsproud Bio “I grew up in west Texas, in the big ol’ town of Littlefield. After graduation I continued my education and athletic career at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa where I played basketball and softball, while studying kinesiology and mathematics. I have been all over Texas coaching multiple sports (including volleyball, basketball, softball, and track) and decided it was time to head back toward home. I have had the opportunity to teach middle school science, math, and social studies, as well as Algebra 1, Geometry, Pre-Cal and Calculus. I will be moving to Plains from Brady ISD in the “Heart of Texas”, where I taught 7th grade science and coached volleyball, basketball, and softball. I look forward to moving back to west Texas and joining the Plains ISD family.”
