Bonnie Sullivan - Principal
I have been dedicated to Elementary Education for well over a decade. I spent seven years as a classroom teacher in grades 3rd , 4th, and 5th. I have worked as an instructional coach, intervention specialist for grades K-2ndand most recently, served as an assistant principal and principal at Burnet Elementary and Shady Grove Elementary. I am honored to serve as the new principal at Bertram Elementary.
I grew up in the Dallas Area and graduated from Texas Christian University. Go Horn Frogs! My husband, Garth, and I moved to the Hill Country four years ago to put our roots down here. We have two children – a two year old boy and a 4 month old baby girl. I also have a 13 year old spunky, small and fluffy dog named Dolly!
In my free time, I love to be with my family and spend time outdoors. We also love to watch the Bulldogs play on Friday night. Go Bulldogs!
Finally, my advice to students is never let anyone tell you that you can’t follow your dreams. If you work hard and pursue your dreams, the sky is the limit. Having a college degree will make it easier and that work starts here at Bertram Elementary!
I am looking forward to a great year!
