Ms. Kirby - 7th Grade ELAR Teacher
Welcome Everyone! This will be my 19th year teaching ELAR.
I am a graduate of St. Joseph Academy in Brownsville, Texas in 1982. I attended the University of Texas in Austin, Texas and transferred to The University of Texas in Brownsville, graduating with a Bachelors of Arts Degree in English. I taught four years for BISD in Brownsville, Texas - teaching high school English in the 9th-12 grades. I then transferred to SBISD in Houston, Texas - teaching high school English in the 9th-12 grade for four years!
After taking time off to raise my family, I then came back to my love of teaching where I taught 7th and 8th grade English for five and a half years for St. Matthew Catholic School and St. Peter Prince of the Apostle teaching 6th, 7th and 8th grade English.
This year, I will celebrate my 7th wonderful year of teaching in the Judson District at the awesome school, Woodlake Hills Middle School.
I love what I do - teaching the skills students need to continue on to a higher level and giving some enlightening information about life and circumstances. It is a joy and pleasure to watch middle schoolers learn and grow. The end process is a wonderful experience.
Feel free to contact me at anytime to set a conference before 7:30 - 7:50 or after school (please call the school (210)661-1110 to make an appointment).
