Commerce Elementary Administration
  • It is my privilege to be the principal for Commerce Elementary School. I am very excited to be a part of the CISD administrative team. I value the opportunity to help provide a safe, nurturing environment, where everyone is valued and appreciated for what they can bring to the classroom, school, and community. I am beginning my 31st year in education. Without a doubt, the past 29 years of my life have blessed me with some of my most rewarding experiences.

    My parents, A.B. and Nancy Madewell, moved my two brothers, two sisters and me to Commerce in 1960. My siblings and I grew up in the community of Commerce and were all graduates of the Commerce Independent School District. After graduating from Commerce High School in 1975, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement from East Texas State University. I began teaching at the Fannindel Independent School District in 1987. During my 19 years at Fannindel Elementary, I taught grades K-6th and was also an Instructional Reading Coordinator. In 2003, I returned to Texas A&M University-Commerce and completed my Masters of Education in Administration earning my Mid Management Certification. I have been with the Commerce Independent School District for the past 11 years serving as a third grade teacher at the A.C. William’s Campus for three of those 11 and 8 as Administration at Commerce Elementary.

    My husband, Glenn, and I have been married for 41 years and live in Cooper. He is the vice-president of Transportation and Warehousing for Delta Logistics in Greenville. We have two children, Jennifer, and Colby. They are both graduates of Cooper High School. Since then, Jennifer has earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from The University of Texas in Dallas. In 2007, she married Cody Allen, a graduate of The University of North Texas. She, Cody, our grandson, Aidan, and granddaughter, Addison, live in Commerce and both are employed with L-3 in Greenville. Our son, Colby, earned his welding certification from Paris Jr. College and Firefighter and EMS certification from Texas A&M University-Commerce. He has been employed with UPS since 2004. Colby married Brittany White, a Paris native and graduate, in 2007. Brittany graduated from North Texas Community College Dental Hygiene Program in Mt. Pleasant. She is now a dental hygienist. We have a total of three grandchildren.

    It is my sincere belief that “Every teacher is a leader, Every leader is a teacher, and Every child is a success.”

  • I am honored to be the assistant principal at Commerce Elementary School.  It is my pleasure to serve our learning community and contribute to a successful school year in any way I can.

    I am a graduate of Whitewright High School.  I then attended East Texas State University in Commerce where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with certifications in Elementary Self-Contained Grades 1-8 and Elementary Life-Earth Science Grades 1-8.  I returned to Texas A&M University-Commerce and earned my Master’s in Elementary Education and my Administrative Certification.

    I am beginning my 24th year in education.  My teaching career began in the eighth grade science classroom at Commerce Middle School, as well as coaching seventh /eighth grade girls’ athletics.  I transitioned to the elementary level after my first year where I spent eleven years teaching all subjects in the fourth grade classroom, a year with third, fourth and fifth grade students teaching a reading intervention program, and five years teaching math and/or science in fifth grade.  My last three years of teaching were completed in the sixth grade science classroom at Commerce Middle School.  This year will be my third year as assistant principal for Commerce Elementary School.

    I am married to Michael Beane, a Commerce High School graduate, who owns his own business, Com-Tex Heating & Air Conditioning.  We have two daughters. Chelsey, a recent graduate of Commerce High School, attends Texas A&M University in College Station.  She is working toward a business degree from May’s Business School.  Cailynn, a freshman at Commerce High School, is a member of the junior varsity volleyball team and is also involved in dance.  My husband and I are proud of the education and experiences our daughters have received growing up in the Commerce community.


    Commerce Elementary School provides a safe, child centered environment in which our students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Teachers and staff members are dedicated and committed to the success of every child. I look forward to working with all our stakeholders to provide support and interaction that contributes to a wonderful partnership between home, community and school, thus benefiting the children at CES.

  • "I believe that children come first. I believe that children deserve to be challenged. I believe the things we do best are the things we do together. I believe that kids' opinions matter. Children come first. I believe because I am the counselor." Roberto '99 

    This motto guides each day as I enter into the opportunities to serve the children, family and staff of CES. I have been a part of the CISD family for 23 years; as a classroom teacher for 4 years and counselor for 19 yrs. My formal education began in 1973 with a B.S. in Elementary Education with Kindergarten endorsement from East Texas State University; Masters of Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina (1977); postgraduate work towards a doctorate and a Counseling Certification from Texas A&M-Commerce (2002). I have taught early childhood, elementary and university students in Dallas, Oak Cliff, South Carolina and Texas and directed an early childhood center for 2-5 year olds.
    I enjoy serving our community through volunteer work with First Baptist Church, Northeast Texas Children's Museum, Psychology Club, Delta Kappa Gamma, Clothe-a-Child, Garden Club, Girl Scouts, Symphony League, CISD organizations and Kappa Delta during the 33 years that I have lived in Commerce.

    Growing up in Garland, Texas and having grandparents in Wolfe City and just 'over the river' (between Bonham and Durant), I found attending college in Commerce to be a natural choice. The decision to move back to Commerce after graduate work and to remain here was a positive move for our family.

    Rick, my husband of 43 years, and I have a daughter, Allison who is 31 years old. We have enjoyed raising Allison in Commerce and she attended CISD schools from kindergarten through high school. The education, encouragement and enrichment she received has equipped her to be successful at Texas A&M, College Station. Our Aggie finished her degree in English/Wildlife Conservation in May 2009. She went on to complete a MA degree in English at Texas A&M Corpus Christi in 2011. Recently, she completed her PhD in English at TAMU-C and is an Assistant Professor at Navarro College.
