Gunstream Elementary School

David Smolka

My name is David Smolka and I am so proud to serve as the principal here at Gunstream Elementary.  I am originally from a small town in Upstate New York called New York Mills.  I received my Bachelors Degree from Geneseo State University, and my Masters Degree from The University of Houston – Clear Lake. 
I have been in education since 1992 and have been the principal here since Gunstream opened.  

My family and I moved to Frisco in 2001 and I served as an assistant principal in FISD before moving to Gunstream as the principal.  My family includes my wife Kim, and my daughter Chloe.  I love to draw and listen to music.  I also enjoy running as a stress relief and form of exercise.  I am so happy to be part of such a great school district, and to be able to make an impact on the students I work with each day.
