Welcome to Mrs. Van Aken's class page!


Hello! My name is Mrs. Debbie Cuellar-VanAken. I will be your child’s teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.

I attended the University of Houston Clear Lake.  In 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Bilingual Education. In 2012, I decided to return to school and in 2014, I graduated from Lamar University with my Master’s degree in Education Administration. I am also certified in Special Education.

My husband Randy and I have been married 20 years and we have 5 children (4 girls and 1 boy) and 2 grandchildren, 5 year old twin boys!

This will be my 10th year teaching and my first year at Sam Jamison Middle School and I am excited to make this my best year yet!
