St Stephen’s is our community – it’s where our children learn and where our family worships. I’m honored to serve on the school board to do what I can to help sustain and grow the school and community we value so much.

Tyler Swanson

I genuinely love the community at St. Stephen’s and am honored to serve on the Board during this important time as the school expands and continues to grow and nurture curious thinkers.

Tamala Singleton

I am a lifelong learner and educator. Professionally, I am in my 33rd year serving as a college administrator in the area of student affairs and have been with the University of Houston since 2012 as the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs. Personally, as a member of St. Stephens Episcopal Church, I believe in the ministry of education through the St. Stephens Episcopal School. I serve on the Board of Trustees because I believe in the mission of the school and the Montessori curriculum.  I am humbled by the opportunity to serve and proud of the many achievements of our students, faculty, and staff each and every year.  

Dan Maxwell

I have been a member of St Stephen’s since 1985. My son attended St Stephen’s School in the 90s from Orientation to Upper El.  I am a member of the Vestry and I am the Vestry Liaison.

Cathlyne Camp-Murray

Although my family is relatively new to St. Stephen’s church and school, we feel a strong connection to this community, which has embraced us so warmly. I am honored to serve and hope to assist and counsel our marvelous faculty and staff to the best of my ability as we navigate these uncertain times.

Jaime Espinoza

St. Stephen’s Episcopal School-Houston is a vibrant and progressive center for education and learning.  For over 30 years, I have witnessed the impact of having this school, grounded in principles of Montessori education, as part of my spiritual community.

As a SSESH parent, I saw firsthand the dedication and amazing work ethic of the academic and support staff as they affirmed values of school and parish.  The importance of community, respect for others, valuing each individual, and the concept of meeting the child where they are — these are just some of the gifts of St. Stephen’s.

It is a privilege to serve with the other board trustees, working to meet new challenges and to continue the mission and vision of our school.
