Campus Leaders

Ester Polanco

Founding Principal, IDEA Kyle Academy

Ester started her career with IDEA in 2012 in the Rio Grande Valley as a co-teacher, elementary math teacher, and eventually a grade-team leader at IDEA San Benito Academy.

She played a key role as Assistant Principal of Instruction from 2014-2016 at IDEA San Benito Academy, earning “Lead Team Member of the Year” in her last year there. Eager to apply her skills in a new context, Ester became a Principal in Residence over the summer for the Austin region, and currently works at Bluff Springs Academy.

Denise Abellano

Principal, IDEA Kyle College Prep

In her time at IDEA, Denise has been a successful Chemistry teacher and Grade Team Leader, and an Assistant Principal of Instruction with the highest of credentials.

While managing a large number of teachers—many of whom were new to IDEA—Denise has maintained 100% teacher retention in her portfolio and has been instrumental in the work to ensure Montopolis CP maintains its A-Level TEA status and hits 100% college matriculation for the first time. Most importantly, she has demonstrated a strong ability to drive student achievement results through the effective coaching and managing of adults. Additionally, Denise comes to IDEA with years of teaching experience including four different Advanced Placement Science courses. She is excited to get to know the Kyle community and to ensure 100% of Kyle Knights are college-ready for years to come.
