Meet the Principal


Hello! I am your new campus principal, Ms. Yvette Bradford. I was born and raised in Temple, Texas. I attended Emerson, Meridith-Dunbar, Travis, and Temple High School. In 1997, I was a recipient of Temple ISD's Grow-Your-Own Scholarship, which allowed me to attend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and return to Temple ISD as a teacher at Scott Elementary and Bonham Middle School. After obtaining my master's degree from Tarleton State University, I became an assistant principal in Round Rock ISD. For the past 11 years, I have grown as an instructional leader, and I have learned to create sustainable systems in organizations. I am honored to be returning to lead in the community that loved and raised me. I am dedicated to creating a collaborative, student-centered, growth-oriented learning community with you. I am most proud of my son Armand, a senior at Texas A&M University - College Station.


I know we are in some trying times right now, but if we work together, there is no way that we won't come out stronger, wiser, and better than we could have ever imagined. I am excited about the future of Lamar Middle School and the community we serve.
