Pullam Community, 

Let me be the first to welcome you to Mittie Pullam Elementary School.  I am the very proud principal of Pullam Elementary.  This is school of dedicated staff and enthusiastic learners, and I’m pleased that you have chosen our school for your child’s education.   

Our amazing teachers work hard to create an exceptional learning environment for our students. As a result, our school was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2021 for our overall academic achievement.  This prestigious award was received last year in Washington D.C.  In addition, Pullam Elementary also received an “A” rating in all areas of the Texas Education Agency’s accountability system in 2022.  We excelled in achievement as well as in academic growth.    

This 2022-2023 school year will be my 27th year in education.  I have served as teacher, counselor, assistant principal and principal.  My time serving in education has been at all three levels - elementary, middle school and high school.  I am a product of BISD, having graduated from Porter High School in 1990.  I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Texas and a Masters in Guidance and Counseling from the University of Texas in Brownsville.  After that I continued with my administration certification from UT Brownsville as well.   

It is a privilege to serve you and your children.  Feel free to contact our staff or administrative team anytime.  

Yours in Service,

Mark Marquez, Principal
