My name is Mark Polit and I am starting my 24th year in education. I have spent 22 of those years as a High School Social Studies teacher, football, baseball and track coach in McAllen, San Antonio and Frisco ISD. I am starting my third year as an administrator and I am excited to be at Strike. I earned my Bachelor's degree from St. Joseph's College, my Masters from Grand Canyon University and I am currently working on my Doctorate at Dallas Baptist University.
Degrees and Certifications:
M. Ed. Educational Administration, Concordia University, Texas BA in English, University of California, Los Angeles
I am honored to be part of the Strike Middle School team and am looking forward to serving the students, staff and community of Little Elm ISD. I have been part of the Little Elm family since 2010 and have served as assistant principal at Prestwick STEM Academy, Lakeside Middle School, and as the intern assistant principal at Hackberry Elementary.
My experience in education includes serving as Math/Science specialist at Hackberry Elementary where I provided intervention to at-risk students and collaborated with teachers to implement district curriculum. Prior to that I taught bilingual education in a Title 1 school and worked in the private school setting in California. One of the things that I enjoy the most about my job is building relationships with students, staff and the community. It brings me great joy when students see their own academic growth and achieve their personal goals. I look forward to continuing to serve the community of Little Elm ISD.
