Hello! My name is Raff Saeed, and I am proud to serve our learning community as the Principal at C. E. King High School.
I am the youngest of five children. Although my parents did not receive sufficient schooling, somehow they knew the value of hard work and the importance of education. With a keen eye on our upbringing, and a laser focus on our education, my parents dedicated their lives to ensuring that all of us went to college and got the education that they themselves never had.
I earned my Doctorate in Education in Ethical Leadership and my Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas, and my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University.
Prior to joining the ranks of educators, I served as a Sergeant in the United States Army. My past experience in education includes serving five years as a middle school social studies teacher, one year as an administrator intern, and two years as an assistant principal in Galena Park ISD. Since joining Sheldon ISD, I have had the opportunity to serve as an Academy Principal for a year and then as the Associate Principal at C. E. King High School for another two. In addition, I served as the Principal of C. E. King Middle School for three years.
I am very excited and honored to continue to serve with such a dedicated group of educators. Both my wife Sheryl (who is a K-12 product of Sheldon ISD) and I deeply care about our students, and want to ensure that our students become the future leaders of our community. My belief in “Education for ALL, No Excuses!” comes from my parents and the teachers who supported me and guided me all the way through. Therefore, I will continue to do the same for our learning community here in Sheldon ISD.
