About Mrs. White
Howdy and welcome!  I am Mrs. White and I love giraffes.  I am married and have 2 boys, ages 9 and 7.  I also have a dog named Sheba.  I was born in El Paso and attended Lamar, Vilas, and Mesita Elementary and then Wiggs Middle School.  I then attended and graduated from El Paso High School, Go Tigers!  I am the Wolf Den Leader for the Cub Scouts in Pack 72.  Scouting allows me to combine 2 of my passions, teaching and spending time with my family.

Educational Background
I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M University, Aggie class of 2001, WHOOP!  While enrolled at Texas A&M I had the opportunity to study at Santa Chiara in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy and I also studied at the Universidad de Guadalajara-CEPE in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Teaching Career 

I began my teaching career in Mansfield ISD in 2002 where I taught students in a collaborative and bilingual Pre-Kindergarten until 2007.  I returned to El Paso in 2007 and continued teaching students in a collaborative & bilingual Pre-Kindergarten class at Cielo Vista Elementary School until 2012.  I was very honored to be selected as Cielo Vista's Teacher of the Year in 2012.

Dr. Green
This is my 6th year teaching children in Kindergarten at Dr. Green Elementary School.  I feel very fortunate to work with such an amazing group of educators and staff and with the wonderful students that make up our Dr. Green Hawk family.  I was again honored to be selected as Teacher of the Year for the 2015-2016 school year.

KF Giraffes
The students in my homeroom class are the KF giraffes.  Ms. Barraza (KC Owls) and I teach dual language kindergarten.  Our students attend my class for all subjects in English and her class for all subjects in Spanish.  I truly enjoy working with children and feel that....

I am very excited and I look forward to making many happy memories with my kindergarten students.
