Alicia Harris - Principal
I am proud to lead Bertram Elementary as the Principal. Just a little about myself, I have been blessed with diverse experiences that have given me opportunities to work with diverse groups of students and families. My work in schools began in 2001, while I was a college student serving as a mentor to underserved youth. Since then I have served as a classroom teacher, special education teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal. I believe that people are at the heart of the work done in schools and relationships are a key element to successful schools. I was drawn to Bertram because of the relationships that can be formed and cultivated in a small school.
Like many of the teachers at Bertram, I love our school and the symbol that the historic classic building is to this community. The Classic Building is a living symbol of our community's commitment to the education of each young person who enters our doors. On a side note, if you drop by my office you will find my great-grandfather's 100-year-old school slate and the handbell from his one-room schoolhouse. Like the Classic Building, my great-grandfather's slate and bell remind me of the transcending gift that is a quality public education.
This year we will strive to provide a learning environment that enriches your child each day with new ideas, engaging experiences, and supportive relationships. Our goal is for every student to reach their fullest potential during their time at Bertram Elementary School. I am excited to meet the students and families of Bertram Elementary and begin a wonderful year together.
Angela Schreiber - Assistant Principal
I am honored to join the Bertram Elementary School family. I earned my bachelor's degree and teaching certificate through the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Go Cru!) and my master's degree through Texas State University (Go, Cats, Go!). This fall marks my 20th year in education, and I have been fortunate to learn from a wide range of students, families, and staff throughout my career. Two of my core values are close relationships and love, and I strive to live out these values in all aspects of life. I am a life-long learner and have a deep interest in fostering a love of learning within the hearts and minds of all students.
When I walk through the halls of Bertram Elementary School, I see endless possibilities. I know that the children who walk through our building's halls, laugh in the cafeteria, and embrace learning in the classrooms are the future, and it is my great joy to serve both the students and the community. When a child comes to school at B.E.S., the child is deeply loved, respected, and treasured. At Bertram, we will strive to ensure each child reaches the fullest potential. I am looking forward to a fabulous school year, and I can't wait to meet students and families!
