Molly McClure, Trustee
"It is really an honor for me to play a part in supporting children in meeting their future aspirations. I am excited about the direction our district has taken to provide an excellent education with quality teachers and instruction. I want to be a part of this endeavor because it supports the future of our entire community."
Molly McClure and her husband Leon have proudly called Bastrop home since 2010. A retired educator with over 20 years of experience in elementary and special education, Molly saw her classroom as a laboratory for her own learning. She utilized her knowledge to support other teachers as an Instructional Coach and Professional Developer for Clear Creek ISD, and then later as a consultant with private and public schools. In addition, she served as a Staff Developer for Houston-area teachers seeking National Board Certification.
Mrs. McClure holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Development from the University of Houston. Molly received National Board Certification in 2000 and then earned certification as a Master Reading Teacher in the state of Texas in 2001.
Retirement for Molly has not brought closure to her career but rather a continued presence demonstrating the passion she holds for bringing the best quality of education to all children. Molly has served on the Bastrop ISD Strategic Planning Action Team, the Bastrop Education Foundation Board, and the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce We Believe in BISD committee. Molly volunteers at the Ladies of Charity Thrift Shop in Bastrop and with the annual Bastrop Historical Society fundraising event. She is a member of Ascension Catholic Church.
Molly has served as a trustee since 2014. Molly is also a graduate of the 2016-2017 Leadership Academy for the Texas Association of School Boards. She and Leon have three children and two grandchildren living in Austin and Houston.
