TEXAS CITY – Texas City ISD is pleased to announce that Dr. Terri Burchfield has been promoted from the Assistant Superintendent of Support Services to the Deputy Superintendent of Support Services. This promotion comes upon this month’s retirement of Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Susan Myers and the hiring of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Kami Hale.
Burchfield has been an administrator in Texas City ISD for the past 20 years. She served Kohfeldt Elementary School as assistant principal for 2 years and principal for 8 years. She was promoted to the Director of Special Programs in 2010. She has served in multiple capacities in Texas City ISD’s central office for the past 10 years including Director of Elementary Education and Director of Support Services.
“Dr. Burchfield is such a valuable member of my executive team,” said Texas City ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Duarte. “She has administrative experience in so many areas from curriculum and instruction to board policies. Her tenure with the district, paired with her knowledge and experience, makes her an ideal choice for deputy superintendent.”
She began her career in education as an elementary school teacher in Galveston ISD 30 years ago. Burchfield has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Texas A&M University, a Master of Science Degree in Educational Management from the University of Houston Clear Lake and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from UHCL. She holds both principal and superintendent certification.
