Assistant Principal's Page


My name is Debra Kassaw and I am thrilled to serve as assistant principal at Elysian Fields Elementary School.  Our EF family has a wonderful tradition of excellence and I look forward to an outstanding 2021-2022 school year. 

I'm married to Jon Kassaw and our son, Michael, is in 1st grade. I graduated from Beckville High School in 1995, from Welch College in 2000 with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Learning, and from Lamar University in 2012 with a Master's in Educational Leadership. I briefly taught in Longview ISD until given the opportunity to move to Elysian Fields in 2001. I taught kindergarten in Elysian Fields ISD for 18 wonderful years. This is my third year to serve as the assistant principal. My free time is spent with my family, reading, singing, watching movies, and occasionally pretending I have a green thumb.
