Meet PME's Principal
Mrs. Camela Guyton is a native Ausitinite, where she attended Andrews and Blackshear Elementary, Kealing Middle School, Austin High and Lyndon Baines Johnson High School.

She learned from her sixth-grade teacher and now mentor, to meet every student exactly where they are. Mrs. Guyton is also a proud magna cum laude graduate of Huston-Tillotson University (HTU), one of the Nation’s oldest Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.
