Mr. Dion Ward

Greetings to you all, 

My name is Dion Ward and I am truly excited to begin another year here at Kirby Middle School.  I look forward to working with you and your students to foster an engaging learning environment in which your child can grow and thrive. 

I am a proud product of Judson ISD, graduating from Judson High School in 2003.   I continued my education and graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in December 2009 with a Bachelor's Degree in communication and social interaction.  After graduation, I obtained my teaching certificate, and have been in the classroom ever since. 

My teaching career started in San Antonio I.S.D. where I was fortunate to be able to teach Social Studies at the 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade levels.   I also had the opportunity to teach in the AVID program.  After three years in SAISD, I was able to transition to Kirby Middle school.  This was very exciting, as I am a product of Kirby.  Since that time, I have taught, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Social Studies courses.  I have also taught Reading and English classes at the 6th grade level. 

I am proud to be home teaching students who come from the same community I grew up in. My goal is to not only teach students but inspire them to become productive members of our local society and the world at large.  With your help, I believe we will have a great year!
