Gus Birdwell Elementary

Alexis Beck

Welcome to Gus Birdwell Elementary! I am Lizet Olmos, the elementary principal. This is my 12th year at GBE. This is my first year as the elementary principal. Previously I was the assistant principal, counselor, and teacher. I have a Bachelor of Science from West Texas A&M University and a Master's in counseling and principal certification from the University of St. Thomas. I am happily married to Miguel Olmos. We have 4 children, Miguel, Julian, Sophia, and Jacob. I enjoy teaching Sunday school at Sacred Heart. Spending time with my family is my greatest joy. We love to cheer on the Spearman Lynx & Lynxettes and the Dallas Cowboys!  

As part of the Gus Birdwell staff, I am committed to high quality education for students and building strong relationships to meet the needs of all of our students. Our great team at GBE is committed to differentiated instruction to help students learn and grow to be responsible members of our society.  We look forward to celebrating all of their successes. We love our students and are eager to bring instruction to life while maintaining high expectations. I am dedicated to working with all of our students, parents, and staff to ensure our students reach their full academic potential.
