Jonathan Powell

My name is Jonathan Powell, and I am thrilled to serve you as the principal of New Caney High School. I attended Houston Christian University for my undergraduate degrees and Lamar University for my Masters in Education. I have served as an educator in this community for the last 17 years. I originally taught and coached here at New Caney High School, then served as assistant and associate principal here. I was principal at KCMS for three years before returning to NCHS as the building principal. I am starting my second full year as principal here at New Caney High School. 
I am excited to be at New Caney High School, and I genuinely look forward to helping make your experience with NCHS a positive one. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Be the light!

Amber Beard

Hello, Eagle Family!
My name is Amber Beard, and it is my privilege to serve the New Caney High School community as Dean of Instruction.  I grew up in East Texas and earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, where I majored in English. I have 15 years of classroom teaching experience and spent the majority of my teaching career in Beaumont ISD and Humble ISD. Beyond the wonderful years spent in the classroom, I have also been fortunate to work as a District Curriculum Coach for English Language Arts and serve as an Assistant Principal in Channelview ISD.  
I look forward to continuing serving the students, staff, and families of New Caney High School as we endeavor to make learning relevant and engaging for all of our students. My personal and professional goal is to ensure that all of our students have the resources they need to succeed in whatever path they choose.  At New Caney High School, we believe in excellence, and our staff works hard to ensure our students know and have access to every opportunity possible. 
Go Eagles!

Dr. Joseph Genovese

Hey Eagles! My name is Joseph Genovese, and I am ecstatic about returning to my home as the Associate Principal of New Caney High School.  I started my career here as a Science and Engineering teacher here before being promoted to being an Assistant Principal.  Last year I was given an opportunity to learn more about middle school and specifically work with our incoming 9th grade class.  Being back with Mr. Powell and working with the administrators and teachers that I have grown up professionally with is a dream come true.

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, but grew up in Kingwood.  I graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in history.  After beginning my work at NCHS, it was Mr. Powell who encouraged me to go back to school and I got my master’s from Lamar University in Education Administration in 2016.  With the support of my family, I went back again and completed my Doctorate in Educational Leadership for Lamar University in 2023.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Ashley for the last eight years.  We have a five-year-old son James and in August of 2024 will welcome our second son William into our lives.  New Caney High School has been my home for over a decade.  Let’s build a positive environment where students feel safe to grow into the person they want to become. If you need any assistance, please feel free to reach out. GO BIG BLUE!

Be better today than you were yesterday.

My family has a long history in education, both my parents and grandparents plus many others are all educators.

After graduating from SHSU, I spent the first 5 years as an elementary teacher, then moved into secondary behavior after earning a master’s degree from Lamar University.  In the 19/20 school year, I moved to New Caney High School to support students as a counselor and now an assistant principal.                  
I enjoy working with students and families academically, emotionally, and socially while they are becoming the individual they are meant to be.    
I'm looking forward to an amazing school year!
