It is my pleasure to serve as the principal for Burnet Elementary. My name is Maria Serrano, and this is my 22nd year in education. Prior to becoming Burnet’s principal, I served in different roles including teacher, counselor, assistant principal, and principal at other schools. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Psychology and a Master’s of Education in Counseling, both from the University of Texas at El Paso, and a Certificate in Educational Leadership as well. I love serving as a principal! My passion is developing positive relationships with everyone within the community, working with students as they grow, supporting teachers and staff so that they can reach their greatest potential, strengthening a connection between school and home, and fostering a positive school culture. I am passionate about learning and I constantly pursue learning opportunities for myself and for those around me. I wholeheartedly believe that great schools are the result of great teachers and my primary goal is to continue to support the teachers of Burnet by providing them with the tools they need to be successful and help Burnet students grow and prosper.
