Dear Putnam Families,

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the Assistant Principal of Putnam Elementary School. I am incredibly grateful and excited to join the Falcon’s nest! I look forward to working in partnership with Mrs. Melissa Ortiz and the amazing staff - to continue the work of advocating for and providing all students and families with an educational experience where values and diversity are celebrated. Prior to joining Putnam, I was a Literacy Campus Teaching Coach at Zach White Elementary for 3 years. Before becoming an administrator, I was a classroom teacher at Henderson Middle and Burleson Elementary schools. I enjoy serving the community, teachers, parents, and especially students.

On a more personal note, I enjoy spending time with my three daughters, ages 13, 11 and 6. We love taking evening walks with our dogs, and often you’ll find us at the neighborhood parks. I live just a few blocks from Putnam, so if you see me around the neighborhood, please stop and say hi!

I am committed to working alongside Mrs. Ortiz as we continue to provide leadership and build a structure of collaborative relationships in the school and community - so that ALL students have a variety of opportunities to succeed! I look forward to meeting all students and families the remainder of this school year and the years to follow.

To infinity, and beyond!

Ms. Alicia Jurado
