Tai Choice, Principal

Hello, I am excited and proud to serve as the principal of Covington Fine Arts Academy! I am a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, but was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I began my career in education as a middle school Spanish teacher in the Dallas area and then moved back to Austin where I continued to teach Spanish.

Ten of my eleven years in Austin ISD have been spent at Crockett Early College High School. I was a Spanish teacher, School Improvement Facilitator, Assistant Principal, and Academic Director during my time at Crockett.

I am thrilled to still be a part of the Crockett vertical team and I look forward to working with each of our students, parents, staff and community members, as we continue to ensure that Covington Colts excel academically, explore the arts, serve their community, collaborate, and demonstrate accountability and social, emotional, and physical wellness.

Attending student performance events, whether it be academic, athletic, visual or performing arts is one of the many highlights of being an educator. My children and I enjoy attending these events. I hope to see and meet many of you there supporting our students’ creativity and talents!
