Ms. Lori Latiolais
Welcome back to school for the 2020-21 school year at Metzger Middle School! While this is my 12th year teaching, it is undoubtedlly a new experience for all of us as we dive into virtual learning!
Just like most of this year's 7th graders, this is my second year as a Metzger Mustang, and I am excited to meet all of you as we kick off this new adventure together.
Before joining the Judson team, I taught English Language Arts and Reading in SAISD from 2009-19. In addition to teaching, I coached and coordinted UIL Academic teams, taught AVID, chaired the PBIS committee, worked with the campus theater program, coordinated the IB program, and served in various capacities as a teacher leader at both the campus and district levels. I enjoy the daily challenge teaching offers.
Teaching, however, is my second career. Before entering the classroom, I spent 20 years in the entertainment industry where I worked in management positions in regional theater, theme parks, large-scale corporate, and special events. This career path was a natural extension of my college education from Texas Woman’s University where I studied Theater and Journalism, two degrees that prepared me to teach middle school English more than I ever expected!
