V. Torres-French

About me: I am originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. When I graduated high school, I moved to Kingsville for a few years to attend TAMUK, but after a few years, I transfered to UTPA in Edinburg and moved to McAllen where I lived for many years. After I graduated with my BA in Art Education, I stayed in the valley and taught for over a decade in several local school districts.  My first teaching job was in Mission ISD, followed by Donna ISD (where I also taught violin) and McAllen ISD. While in the valley, I worked on my Master's Degree in Administration and became a certified Principal. In 2014 my family decided it was time for a change and we moved to Pearland. I taught in Houston ISD for one year before being lucky enough to attain my current position in Pearland ISD. This is my third year at THS, where I work part time. The rest of the day I work at the ESC for Pearland ISD where I serve as the district's Fine Art Facilitator. I love my job and I love the arts.

My family (husband, three daughters, my mother and my cat, Jacques Pierre Fluffybottom) love living in Pearland. I am trying to convince my only sibling to move here too!  My daughters all attend the local schools, currently Silverlake Elem and Berry Miller JH. We are all sure that we have found our permanent home.
