A Message from Our New Assistant Principal

Greetings Burleson Family!

It is with great enthusiasm, honor and pleasure that I have been selected to join the Burleson Elementary family.  As a new Viking addition, I thought I’d take a minute to tell you a little about myself.  I am a graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso, receiving both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from this university.  For over ten years, I worked in the San Elizario school district where I taught both first and fourth grade, with my most recent assignment being that of an Instructional Specialist.  During my time in San Eli, I worked under the tutelage of several great educational leaders, who have provided me a plethora of experiences that will be beneficial in serving the Burleson Elementary community as an assistant principal.

My core conviction is that all students are capable of learning, and I have an unwavering belief that educators are responsible for fashioning a positive learning environment that nurtures progress.  Some of my goals as your new Assistant Principal will be to align and collaborate with Principal Medina toward the vision and mission of our school, to continue and encourage open communication with our families and the community, to continue striving for excellence in all academic areas, and to ensure the safety and well-being of all students.  We will continue to work as a team in nurturing and fostering a healthy and positive school environment. 

As we work together to build a bridge between school and home, I encourage you to volunteer in your child’s classroom, join our PTA, and visit our school website regularly as a means of staying informed in our student’s day to day activities.  I am excited about the great things we will achieve during the 2015-16 school year, and I look forward to working with each of you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not ever hesitate to contact me at jachave3@episd.org or by phone at 915-236-8300. 

Mrs. Julie Chavez

Assistant Principal
