The replacement of Gaye Lokey as the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction has put into motion a series of moves within the LCM administration and the creation of a new District position.

Stacey Brister, who has been the principal at Mauriceville Middle School for the past six years, will step into the Director position left open by Lokey’s departure. Todd Loupe, who has served as assistant principal at both Little Cypress Junior High and Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School will become the new principal for MMS.

LCM principal, Jim Armstrong, will take over the recently created position of Director of Student and Personnel Services for the District. Terri Estes, who has served as Assistant Principal and Coordinator of Vocational Skills, will be the new LCM principal.

Following are statements from each administrator.

I am thrilled to be a member of the LCM Administrative Team!  I look forward to working with the campus principals and teachers to ensure continued student achievement and success.
I began my teaching career at Mauriceville Middle School.  I was a classroom teacher for fourteen years.  I moved to the assistant principal position for one year prior to becoming the campus principal for the past six years.

I am excited to serve the district in a new capacity.  My goal will be to serve the kids of this district to the best of my abilities.  I will ensure MMS continues to have the strong leadership that it has enjoyed in the past.
I received my B.S. and Masters in Education from Lamar University.  I have enjoyed six years of teaching in the classroom.  After leaving the classroom I spent a year at Little Cypress Junior High as the Assistant Principal and last year I was the Assistant Principal at Little Cypress Mauriceville High School.

I have been in education for twenty-four years and worked in three different states (Florida, Louisiana and Texas).  I have been blessed to teach at the elementary, middle school, high school, and college level as well as coach at the high school and college level.  I served four years as an assistant principal before coming to LCM High School in 2000 as principal.
