Stewart has 25 years of experience in education, and was serving as the Curriculum and Instruction Assistant Principal at Burnet High School prior to taking on the interim position.
“Jennifer has been described by her staff as a kind and caring leader that is knowledgeable, visible, and a systems-thinker. These qualities, along with her outstanding work ethic and professional background as a teacher and administrator, make her the natural choice to lead the campus,” said Superintendent Keith McBurnett.
"When I started as Interim Principal in January and asked staff for feedback on the most important thing I needed to know about Burnet Middle School, the overwhelming response was, ‘We are a family,’” said Stewart. “This statement is 100% accurate. Within three months, I already feel a part of the BMS family and care tremendously about the staff and students. I am honored and blessed to have the opportunity to continue to serve the BMS faculty and students as Principal for the next school year. I look forward to collaborating with staff to build a culture, vision, and strategic plan to ‘craft a positive future’ for our students and help each one reach his/her full potential,” said Stewart.
