Mrs. Beatriz Rodriguez


I am a BOI and a product of Galveston Schools. I graduated from Ball High in 1990 and immediately began attending the University of Houston Main Campus. In 1994 I graduated and was fortunate to return to Galveston and become a part of GISD’s extraordinary teaching team at Weis Intermediate at the time. In the Fall of 1997, I received my 1st Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Specialization in Bilingual and ESL from U of H Main Campus. At the time, I also transferred to Alamo Elementary and began teaching Bilingual Students until 2001. In 2001, I completed my second Master’s Degree in School Administration and began to work as an Assistant Principal for GISD. I worked for GISD until 2004. From 2004 until the summer of 2008, I was employed as an Assistant Principal with Clear Creek ISD at Stewart Elementary which became a National Blue Ribbon School in 2008. I returned to GISD in August of 2008 as the Assistant Principal at Morgan Elementary. I was named Principal of Early Childhood University and Weis Middle School in the Spring of 2010. Early Childhood University was awarded a Magnet Grant in the Summer of 2010. In the Fall of 2014 Burnet Elementary was reopened and Early Childhood University was moved from the Weis building to Burnet Elementary where I continue to serve as Principal. I am currently serving my 10th year of being a Principal with GISD.

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Burnet Elementary! I am extremely honored to be serving as the principal of this wonderful school! It is my hope that as the year progresses you will get to know the staff and the programs we offer here at Burnet.  It is the goal of the staff  to work with you to create a rich learning environment for all students. Student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, students and parents.

Burnet Elementary is a Pre-K through fourth grade elementary school located on Ave S and 55th Street in Galveston.

Burnet parents are encouraged to join our PTO.
