Dianna Lee- SACC Unit Teacher
I entered the field of teaching later in life. I started as a paraprofessional in a life skills classroom in 2009, and as they say, the rest is history! Supporting these students and helping them reach their highest potential is my greatest joy! I have been married for a long time! We have three children and one granddaughter. This year is going to be a whole new experience for me. It so exciting!
LIBRARIAN- Alejandra Isais
My name is Alejandra Isais and I am the new librarian at Bush Elementary. I was born in El Paso, TX., but lived most of my life in Cd. Juárez in México. I have been married to my amazing husband Cesar for two and a half years. I love to read, go to the movies, bake, and do crafts. I have a slight obsession with school supplies, specially colored pens and notebooks. This will be my 10th year in education and cannot wait to join everyone at Bush Elementary.
Mi nombre es Alejandra Isais y soy la nueva bibliotecaria de la escuela primaria Bush. Nací en El Paso, TX., pero viví la mayor parte de mi vida en Cd. Juárez en México. Tengo dos años de casada con mi esposo Cesar. En mi tiempo libre me encanta leer, ir al cine, cocinar y hacer todo tipo de manualidades. Tengo una fascinación con los útiles escolares especialmente las plumas de colores y los cuadernos. Este será mi décimo año en educación y no puedo esperar unirme al gran equipo de la escuela Bush.
I am super excited to be the nurse for George Bush Elementary! I have been a school nurse for 15 years and have served as the Wylie's Health Services Coordinator for the past 6 years. I am extremely blessed to be joining a campus again. I know that many of you have worked with amazing nurses in our district and I have big shoes to fill!
I have been married for 13 years to my husband, Jeremy, and we have two daughters. Mycah is currently in the 4th grade at Watkins and will be attending Draper Intermediate as she continues in the Dual Language Program. Ansley is currently in the 1st grade and will be attending Bush in the Dual Language Program. I am extremely passionate about them becoming bilingual (and supporting teachers in that effort) and I appreciate those of you who have helped them along the way!
I look forward to serving you all and the students and families of Bush Elementary!
P.E Teacher- Courtney Wolfe
Hi! I’m Courtney Wolfe. I’m from Richardson, TX and a graduate of JJ Pearce High School. I attended college at the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and played 3 years of collegiate basketball. After teaching and coaching for 3 years out of the area, I moved back 2 years ago from Austin to take a job in Special Education and as Assistant Girls’ Basketball Coach at Wylie East HS. I’m finishing my 5th year in education and 2nd in WISD and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I will continue to coach Cross Country and Girls’ Basketball at East as well as teaching Physical Education at George W. Bush Elementary during the 2016-17 school year. Recently I got engaged to Patrick, who is also a teacher and coach. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, family, friends, shopping, traveling, sports, and being active. I’m very excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the GWB family! Can’t wait to get started! GO EAGLES!
