Dr. Jo Ann Colson- Principal

It is a privilege to serve as the Principal at Decker Prairie Elementary.  I have over 30 years of experience in Education.  I received my Bachelor's and my Master's degrees from Stephen F. Austin State University.  I received my Doctor of Education from Lamar University.  I have taught students in grades Second to Seventh.  My husband and I have two sons and a beautiful granddaughter.  We live in the Magnolia area.


I believe great things are happening at Decker Prairie and I invite everyone to be an integral part of all of those things.


I look forward to seeing everyone soon!!!

Gigi Ragan- Assistant Principal

I am thrilled to be serving Decker Prairie as the Assistant Principal.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Education and a Bilingual Endorsement from The University of Houston.  In 2003, I earned my Master of Education in Language Arts with a Reading Specialist Certification from the University of St. Thomas; where I also completed my Principal Certification in 2008.  Over the past thirty years, I have taught students Pre-Kindergarten to fourth grade either as a classroom teacher or a Reading Specialist.  My husband and I have lived in the Tomball/Cypress area for over 25 years.  We have two grown children who both attended Tomball schools.  Our daughter graduated from Baylor University in 2006 and is a librarian in Fort Bend ISD and our son graduated from The University of Houston in 2013 and works in Tomball. 

My goal is for us to work together as a team to provide a quality education where every child finds success through a positive and caring environment.
 "School is a building that has four walls-with tomorrow inside".
I believe that the students of Decker Prairie Elementary are our tomorrow.  It is truly an honor and privilege to be a part of building society's tomorrow with your child.
