Welcome to Sigler Elementary! My goal as the Principal of Sigler Elementary is to provide a safe, child friendly environment that allows students to receive a 21st century education. The Plano Independent School District and the Sigler Staff are currently preparing your students for a future we know very little about. Our goal is to facilitate learning that encourages students to become thinkers who learn! Through the use of 21st century, research based learning strategies and the increased use of technology, I believe, we as a district and building can accomplish this goal. I encourage you to follow me on our journey through the use of 21st century technology.
