| Janna McCollough has been a life-long educator. Starting as a child, she taught her toys! That love of teaching has followed her through her life. She graduated from the University of North Texas, where she taught Geology Labs to fellow college students. Her degree was in Elementary Education. Her first 8 years were spent with 5th, 7th, and 8th graders. Earning her Master's Degree from UNT, she was asked to serve as an assistant principal at Bowie High School in Arlington for 2 years. Having a heart for at-risk students she became the first assistant principal at Turning Point High School in Arlington, where she served for 6 years. She then accepted a position as the Principal of Crossroads High School and Right Turn Discipline Center in Burleson ISD where she has served for 11 years.
Janna joined TAAE in the late 90's, where she also served as the President of the North Central Texas Association of Alternative Educators for 3 years. She served for 2 years on the TAAE Conference Committee. She is thrilled to have been elected to be the Treasurer of the TAAE. Her goal is to make our organization more visible and available to all AEP's, DAEP's, and JJAEP's so that we can support each other and share ideas that work with and for kids!

|H.D. Webb, III might not have ever entered the field of education, had it not been for experiences he had while working at the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department. Rather than be on the back end of the problem, he decided a career in education may help others like him have a brighter future. After graduating from the University of Texas at Dallas, Mr. Webb taught elementary band and sixth grade math/science in Dallas. It was after receiving his Master’s from Dallas Baptist University that he joined DeSoto ISD as an assistant principal. Seeking a new challenge after four years, he requested a transfer to the DAEP campus where he has served as the principal for the last five years. Mr. Webb firmly believes that alternative education is a “calling” and those who accept the call are some of the most passionate and innovative educators out there. He looks forward to helping TAAE grow and impact education across Texas.|
