Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!  This year we are focusing on BUILDING LEADERS ONE STUDENT AT A TIME.  Please join us as we work to teach your child to take responsibility for their own learning and to work others to build a school family that is safe and supportive!  We look forward to this year as we grow together as a family.  
I have a great job! There's nothing I'd rather be than the principal at East Elementary. Not only do I get to work with your awesome kids everyday, but we have a staff of dedicated and loving teachers whose heart is to create a safe and nurturing environment where your child can not only learn, but have fun!

A little about me, we moved to Brownwood in 2003 and I served as assistant principal at Northwest Elementary for 6 years before moving to East Elementary where I just completed my 7th year as principal.  As a teacher, I worked with middle school and high school students, but I have fallen in love these past 13 years with these little guys and I think elementary teachers are the most loving and creative creatures on the planet!

My husband, Joey works with the AVID program at Brownwood High School. We have 2 wonderful sons -  Caleb and Joshua.  Caleb (21) is a junior at Texas Tech where he is majoring in Biology.  He has a passion for music and is a singer/songwriter and plays the guitar, mandolin  and drums. Joshua (19) is passionate about film and editing.  He lives in Denton and works with a team of creative filmmakers, songwriters, artists, etc... There really are two things I do that I LOVE more than being principal at East.....being Joey's wife and Caleb and Joshua's mom!
I am expecting a wonderful year at East with several new staff!  Our goal remains the same - to create a nurturing and loving environment where your child will feel safe and will learn to the best of his/her ability!  With all that said....WELCOME TO EAST! Caleb, Mrs. Wilbourn, Mr. Wilbourn, Josh
