Fort Sam Houston Elementary School Home

Message from the Principal

Welcome to Fort Sam Houston Elementary, home of the Cougar Cubs!
It is with great excitement that I write this introduction to you as the 2024-25 principal of Fort Sam Houston Elementary.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this beautiful campus full of capable and bright students, extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.
I have been in the field of education for 33 years. I begin serving FSHE in 2023 as an Assistant Principal.  Prior to finding my home at Fort Sam Houston ISD, I served the San Antonio ISD communities in various roles. I bring a well-versed background in elementary education, special programs, curriculum and instruction, and positive behavior intervention and support. I look forward to uniting my professional experience with a student-centered approach to support all students. I strongly believe in the equity of educational opportunities for all students, and I enjoy learning from students every day. It is my joy to provide our students with the opportunities and experiences they need to have the confidence to become life-long learners.
 I am thrilled to greet both returning faces and new members to our vibrant school community. Our theme for the 2024-2025 school year  is "All In," which is a reminder of the unity we embody when we work together towards common goals.
At FSHE, being "All In" means more than just participation; it is a commitment to serving the military child. Whether it's academics or extra curricular, we strive for wholehearted dedication and passion. Together, we will create an environment where every student’s unique talents are celebrated and nurtured.
Here's to an inspiring and successful year ahead. Let's go "All In" and make it one to remember!

Julissa Fisher, Incoming Principal at FSHE
