Virginia Callaway

Principal, IDEA Bluff Springs Academy

Ms. Callaway graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas with a B.A. in English and Philosophy and received her M.A. in Teaching (summa cum laude) from St. Edward’s University in Austin. Ginny taught and led in the greater Austin area for ten years (Round Rock ISD and KIPP Austin) prior to joining IDEA’s Principal in Residence Program in the Rio Grande Valley in 2015. She most recently has been serving as principal at Frontier College Prep, where she continued to increase all goal metrics across the campus.  Ms. Callaway has a consistent history of building strong teams, achieving transformational results, and continuing to learn how to do this better and faster. She’s excited to come and lead the Bluff Springs bats to success and partner with students, staff and families to make Bluff Springs Academy an A school.

DeAnna Bruce

Principal, IDEA Bluff Springs College Prep

A native of Austin, she is acutely aware of the educational inequities in her hometown. A Teach for America alum, she has taught and led in both traditional ISDs and CMOs in the Dallas area prior to coming on board as a Principal-in-Residence. This wealth of experience will serve her well as the leader of IDEA Bluff Springs College Prep.
