On August 6, 2021, Carroll ISD announced two assistant principal assignments beginning this school year. Christina Benhoff will serve as the assistant principal for Carroll Senior High School while Steven Silvia will serve as the assistant principal for Carroll High School. These new assignments were due to open positions with principal transitions this summer. Additionally, Benhoff and Silvia are known for their excellent leadership and support to students, parents and staff.
“We are excited to have our assistant principals serve in their new roles,” Gordon Butler, Assistant Superintendent of Student and Staff Services, said. “Both are known for their high energy and continuous pursuit of excellence, which is what CISD is all about.”
Prior to her new appointment, Benhoff was the assistant principal at Carroll High School and is excited to see former students who recently moved to the senior high. Benhoff has served at Carroll High School as assistant principal since 2018. In 2012, she joined the Dragon family as a math teacher and coach at Carroll Middle School and then became the assistant principal for Walnut Grove Elementary School in 2013. Then, she was appointed the assistant principal at Dawson Middle School in 2014 before joining Carroll High School. Benhoff has 14 years of education experience. She received her bachelor’s degree from Southern Illinois University and her master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Missouri.
Silvia is leaving Durham Intermediate School where he served as an assistant principal. Due to his instructional and communication skills, Silva will serve as an asset to the Carroll High School leadership team. Silvia has been part of the Dragon family since 2010 where he started as a teacher and coach at Dawson Middle School. Then, in 2013, he was named the assistant principal at Durham Intermediate School. With his 14 years of education experience, Silvia earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas and his master’s degree in educational leadership from University of Texas Arlington.
