Meet the Assistant Principal

Claudia Arizaleta


My name is Claudia Arizaleta and I’m so honored to serve the Carrollton family!

Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. I have been married to my wonderful husband Nelson for 5 years, and have an awesome bonus daughter named Camila who is by far the smartest and funniest in the family; she will be a 3rd grader next school year. We also have 2 dogs who run the family: Mac & Jack.

During my 10 years in education I’ve had the opportunity and honor to serve in different positions such as Bilingual Teacher (multiple elementary levels and program designs including dual language), new teacher mentor, K-12 Learning Specialist for ESL, Dual Language, and LOTE, and most recently as the Assistant Principal of Blackburn Elementary, a Dual Language campus in Forney ISD.

I’m truly honored to serve you as an assistant principal, and to be part of the great Carrollton Elementary team as we strive to serve our wonderful community. I truly cannot wait to contribute to the effort of making a difference in the life of our students!
