Mrs. Amber Cecil

I am so thankful to be teaching Kindergarten ESL at Oak Grove Elementary this year! I grew up in Houston, TX and received my Bachelors in Social Work from Texas State University. I then earned my Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language from UTSA. This will be my second year teaching and I cannot wait to see how my students and I grow together this year. 

I have always known I wanted to work with children because they are so full of joy and life. I am passionate about fostering growth in all areas - academic, social, and emotional. I strive to create a learning environment where children feel welcome, safe, and like they belong. I am also always aiming to bring fun and excitement to learning!

I have been married to my husband, Andrew, for 7 years and we have a joyful 7-month-old daughter named Lily and sweet, silly, 16-year-old dog named Ace. We love to go hiking, read books, and cook together. We also love to spend as much time as we can with our friends and family. 

Work Hard, Have Fun, and Be Nice! Go Panthers!
