Traci Pridgen

Northside Primary School Principal


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year!  My name is Traci Pridgen and I am honored to serve as the principal at Northside Primary.  This year marks my 25th year in education.  Throughout my career, I have taught grades first through third.  I have also been a reading intervention/dyslexia teacher, after-school coordinator, and assistant principal.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) and my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Lamar University. 


The Northside staff is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment that shapes not only your child's cognitive abilities but also his/her social, emotional and physical well-being. We believe in open communication and a strong home to school connection.  Please feel free to contact me with any celebrations or concerns you may have. I can be reached at 903.731.8020 ext. 1500 or through our Parent Square app.
