​Mrs. Pulido's News​

From The Principal

 Principal Update – Our Administration


Martha Pulido – I am super excited to begin my second year as Principal of Sundown. It has been fun coming back to my Sundown family and getting to know my students, parents, and staff. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas. I loved teaching but felt I had more to contribute and decided to pursue a Masters in Administration from Lamar University.  During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, shopping and traveling with my daughter for her cheer competitions. As principal, my goal is to make sure every student is provided with a safe learning environment while achieving academic growth. I am looking forward to the 2018-19 school year. We are going to learn, make memories, and have lots of fun!


Elizabeth Paz - Hi Armadillo Country! I am very excited to be at Sundown and wanted to share a little bit about myself. I am a product of Katy ISD as a student, teacher, and administrator. I graduated from the University of Houston (Go Coogs!) with my Bachelor’s degree and continued my educational journey for my Master’s degree at Lamar University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, running, and going to any museum I can. I love being at Sundown and knowing that we are making a positive impact daily in the lives of our students. “The future of the world is in my classroom today.” Ivan Welton Fitzwater


Shelly Zaruba – I am both honored and thrilled to begin my seventh year at Sundown Elementary and my 16th year in education.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M and a Master’s degree in Administration from Lamar University.  My classroom experiences have been in first grade, fourth grade, sixth grade world cultures, and seventh grade Texas History.  Currently I am the grade level administrator for grades PK, first, third and fifth.  I have two children (both attending A&M), two dogs and two cats.  My time away from school is spent crafting, scrapbooking, reading, hiking and traveling.  I enjoy spending time with my family and my friends, too.  Building relationships with parents, students, teachers and the community is a key point to student success.  I am proud to be part of a team who ensures every Sundown Armadillo receives the best education possible.  Together we are GREAT!
