Mrs. Helen (Vici) Anderson
I am really looking forward to a great year at Wagner High School, and meeting each of you.
To let you know a bit about me, I am a 1977 graduate of Wayland Baptist University with a bachelor's degree in Speech and Drama with an emphasis in Radio and TV Broadcasting. I also have a Master's Degree from Baylor University in Communications. I am a member of Texas Educational Theater Association and past secretary/treasurer of the El Paso Cappies (which is a critic and performers group for high school actors and technicians.)
I began my teaching career in 1989 by teaching my son's first grade class at St. John's Episcopal Day School in Marlin, TX. I taught in private schools for many years before joining public education in 2004 teaching in the Gifted and Talented program and theater at Morehead Middle School in El Paso, TX. I taught theater from 2008-2018 at Coronado High School in El Paso before moving to the San Antonio area. This is my second year at Wagner. I have taught every age from pre-school to seniors and just about every subject. I really found my niche when I began teaching theater. I have directed the UIL One Act Play for competition for 11 years making it as far as the Area Competition. I have taken students to State in Theatrical Design and One Act Play Honor Crew.
I am excited about the 2019-2020 school year and helping my students gain confidence and invaluable future-ready skills.
