About Shirley - Deeply rooted in the Fort Bend Community!
Shirley Rose-Gilliam is a long-time Fort Bend resident and a 30-year veteran educator and administrator with a proven track record for turning around struggling schools and knows the uphill battles that some schools face. For 25 years she serviced Fort Bend Independent School District, where she spent 10 years as a high school teachers and another 15 years as a campus administrator.
Shirley's passions' lie with teachers and students; she believes students today face a different culture than just a few years ago. We must prepare the whole child: academically, ethically, morally, and socially develop them in order to become successful in today's workforce.
"I am a practioner who understands how policy matters and how it allows educators to do what is best for students. I believe we all plant seeds in order to help a community grow. Fort Bend is a community where I live and I raised both of my children. FBISD was good to me and I would like to give back as a servant for the District. My motto, which has followed me from George Bush High School, is Believe in the Possibilities!"
I appreciate your support! ~Shirley
