Welcome to Bill Brown Elementary

Dear Parents and Students,
 
As the new Principal of Bill Brown Elementary School, it is an honor to continue to serve our community and work with the families of Bill Brown Elementary. The past two years I have served as the Bill Brown assistant principal.  Prior to Bill Brown Elementary, I taught Algebra I for eight years at Smithson Valley High School.  My first two years in Comal ISD I taught Math for Spring Branch Middle School.  My husband and I have lived in the Hill Country and San Antonio area for the past 13 years.  We have two daughters, Margaret and Frances.  
 
As we embark into the new school year I wanted to share with you, we will be departmentalizing second grade.  As our staff strives for continuous improvement in equipping our students to be engaged, life-long learners, discussions have been taking place with our second grade team since the spring about departmentalizing subjects by teachers.  This past year we departmentalized third grade and witnessed great success for our third grade students.  The benefits of teachers focusing on fewer subjects to plan and teach is an enhancement for student learning.  Benefits for students include more focused planning of lessons, strength in teacher ability and delivery, movement in their day, and learning from multiple educators.  All in all, we feel that this is a win-win for students and teachers.
 
I am excited to meet the new families of Bill Brown and I will be excited to see the smiling faces as they walk through front doors as we begin the new year.  I am looking forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.   I believe parents and teachers working together is an essential element for student success.  Open and clear communication between school and home is important for our students. Together, we can make this the best year yet!
 
Please look for important information through Trailblazer Times, teacher newsletters, and the campus website.
 
Thank you,
 
Jillian Jurica, Principal
