Mrs. Deanna Cupero

Hello Wilderness Oak Wolves! My name is Deanna Cupero, and I am the Dyslexia Intervention Teacher.  I feel blessed to be teaching and working with students at the best school in San Antonio!  I have been teaching for 24 years, and have been at Wilderness Oak since it opened 17 years ago. I love our school community and am passionate about educating children and helping students find success in reading.  Helping students with dyslexia learn to read and discover their "super powers" is my passion.  I

I always dreamed of becoming a teacher while growing up in Corpus Christi, Texas. I attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I later attended the University of North Texas where I earned my Master of Education in Reading. I started my career in Dallas, Texas teaching 6th grade, and later worked as a K-6 Reading Specialist We moved to San Antonio and I began teaching at Wilderness Oak in 2005 as a 5th grade teacher. In 2020, I began my journey of becoming a Certified Academic Language Therapist (Dyslexia Therapist) and completed an intense program in 2022. 

My family brings me pure joy and happiness. I have a wonderful husband and have been married to him for 29 years. My daughters are Wilderness Oak alumni too. Both my daughters attended Lopez M.S. and Reagan H.S. My oldest daughter graduated from Texas A&M and is currently teaching 2nd grade.  My youngest daughter attended UT Tyler and is a Neuro PCU nurse in San Antonio.  I am a very proud mom! We also have two very cute and very active dogs. Meg loves to play with her stuffed toys and Presley likes to cuddle. Between teaching, enjoying family time, and playing with the pups, I love to read, enjoy swimming, shopping, and spending time with friends. I look forward to an awesome year filled with reading, fun, and excitement!
