Williams Elementary School

Parent Support Specialist

My name is Jennifer Darling and I am your Parent Support Specialist here at Williams Elementary. Not only am I a very committed staff member, but both of my children also attended Williams and this is the same neighborhood I grew up in since age 4. I am very dedicated to making your experience at Williams as enjoyable and educational as possible. 

I try to have an open door policy when I am on campus because I want to get to know you and help you navigate this journey with your student. I am also responsible for most of the communication on campus utilizing such means as messenger, emails, flyers, website updates, assembly presentation, etc. I want you to be "in the know" and feel comfortable making Williams your home away from home. 

I am BIG on what I call "Memory Making" events so I dive in fully to organize such events as the Fall Glow Run, Spring Carnival and monthly themed Family Nights. I feel it is important for students to be able to make happy memories in a social context while also succeeding academically.

My office phone number is 512-841-5030 or I can be reached by email at jennifer.darling@austinisd.org. I don't have traditional office hours due to some demands that take me off campus but I try to be here between the hours of 7 am until 3:30 pm, sometimes later. 

Please, don't hesitate to send me your questions, suggestions or if you just need to chat. I want to be an advocate and resource for you during your time at Williams Elementary.
