My name is Cody Tunstall and I am the Assistant Principal at Southside Elementary for the 2021 - 2022 school year. I am the proud parent of two Southside Elementary students. I am a lifelong resident of Palestine, Texas and a graduate of Palestine High School (Class of 2000). I earned my B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2005 and my M. Ed. in Administrative Leadership from Lamar University in 2010. I have been fortunate to serve Palestine ISD in many ways since 2005, including as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, grant coordinator, and CTE Director. I am so excited about the opportunity to work with staff, students, and families at Southside Elementary.
