E1 Principal

  Rembrandt Elementary


Mrs. Charlene M. Rodriguez learned from an early age that the most significant way to impact her community would be through education.  In 2002, she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary English Education from Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL.  For six years, Mrs. Rodriguez taught at Carver High School, in her hometown of Columbus, GA, serving the students and community of this urban school with a passion for teaching reading and writing.  During this time, she also received her Master’s Degree in Secondary English Education from Columbus State University.  

In 2008, Mrs. Rodriguez relocated to the Rio Grande Valley with her husband, taking an ELA position at Edinburg High School.  In her time at EHS, she learned a tremendous amount about the rich heritage of the Valley.  Very quickly, the Valley became home to her and her family.  In 2012, Mrs. Rodriguez was given the opportunity to join the Vanguard Academy family, teaching ELA at the Secondary level.  In December 2013, she completed her Principal Certification through the University of Texas Pan American, and the door quickly opened for her to serve as Assistant Principal at Vanguard Rembrandt Secondary.  Serving two years in this position, Mrs. Rodriguez gained deeper insight into what it takes to motivate students, inspire staff and care for the community.  

This year, Mrs. Rodriguez has stepped up as Principal of Vanguard Rembrandt Elementary for the 2016-2017 school year.  As this new journey in education begins, she looks forward to seeing the children of Vanguard become true leaders and find their purpose in life.
