  • Ms. Anthony


    Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year.  I am excited about beginning a new successful school year here at Walter Moses Burton Elementary!

    After graduating from Sam Houston State University, I began my career in Fort Bend ISD in 2000 as a fourth grade teacher at Ridgegate Elementary.  I served the RGE community for seven years.  From there I became a Campus Improvement/Data Specialist in FBISD.  I served as assistant principal of Oakland Elementary for three years before becoming principal of Barbara Jordan Elementary.

    I look forward to a great year of growth and learning with the WBE Sheriff Family.


Jamila Rogers, Assistant Principal



    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am looking forward to working with the Burton Family. I have over 20 years of experience as an educator. Before I began my journey with Fort Bend ISD, I started my teaching career as a 4th grade teacher with Houston ISD. Since then, I have served as an Instructional Coach, Elementary Math Curriculum Specialist, Teacher Development Specialist and Academic Facilitator. Most recently, I have served as an Administrator in Dallas ISD and for the last two years as an Assistant Principal in Fort Bend ISD. 

    A loud and proud UH Cougar, I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from the University of Houston and a Master of Educational Administration Degree from the University of Houston -Victoria. I believe that being an educator is truly part of who I am. The excitement you see on a student’s face when they are learning is very gratifying. Knowing that I’m helping to create a lasting love for learning is what makes it so wonderful. Education is a rewarding profession and I am excited to be able to continue this journey with Burton Elementary School.
