Raised in Tunisia in North Africa, Dr. Azaiez earned a bachelor’s degree in physics and chemistry from La Faculte des Sciences de Tunis. He came to the United States to pursue graduate school, earning a master’s of education from the University of St. Thomas in Houston and a doctorate of education in educational leadership from Sam Houston State University.

Dr. Azaiez is fluent in English, Spanish, Arabic and French. His career in public education began in 2002 as a middle school science teacher with Houston ISD.

Before coming to MD网爆门 Rock ISD, Dr. Azaiez served as the Superintendent of Schools in Donna ISD from 2018 to 2021, where he is credited with spurring significant improvements in the Rio Grande Valley district. He developed a five-year strategic plan for the district and expanded course offerings while streamlining business operations for maximum efficiency. He also expanded pre-kindergarten, making the district the first in the Rio Grande Valley to implement a free, full-day Pre-K program for three-year-olds.

Dr. Azaiez has long advocated expanding opportunities for students, initiating changes in the Houston, Spring and Donna school districts for middle school students to take high school-level math and science courses, which expanded opportunities for those students to pursue higher- level math and science in high school. In Houston ISD, he partnered with Rice University to create the first middle school bioengineering program and is a strong advocate for Career Technical Education courses.
