Welcome Message from the Principal

Hello Bush Families, Students, Staff and Community,

I am so excited to begin the 2022 – 2023 school year as Bush Elementary’s Principal during its 25th Anniversary!

A little about me:

I began my career in Alief ISD as a teacher, moved to Washington due to the Army, where I obtained my Principal certification and came back home to Alief in 2020. I have served as an Assistant Principal, Dean of Students, Team Leader, interventionist and teacher over the past fifteen years. I will use my experience to uphold Alief’s vision and continue to work on Bush’s mission to “promote a positive environment to create life-long learners.”

Some of my life-long learners include my two children, who are eight and five. They keep me really busy! My husband is also an educator and coach in Katy ISD. 

Our theme this year is:

“Individually Unique, Together Complete. Bush Bobcats are Better Together!”

I believe everyone in our students’ lives are an essential part of their achievements. The work we all do together will have a positive impact on them and their future aspirations. I look forward to working with all of you to ensure a successful future for our students.

I hope you have learned a little about me and I am sure we will get to know more about each other over the years. I am elated to join the Bush Bobcats and work alongside all school community members to ensure the success of everyone that walks through our doors. We will make Bush a home away from home, while increasing academics and emotional intelligence. Let’s make this year our best year!


Your Proud Principal,

Terae Harris
