My name is Rene Comalander. This is my 28th year of teaching and my 11th year at Las Lomas. We will learn and grow so much in the coming year and I am looking forward to being with the children this year. First grade will be an exciting journey and I am privileged to share it with your child.
I grew up in Port Arthur, Texas and graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas with my degree in Elementary Education. I taught in Houston for 6 years before moving to San Antonio and teaching in North East Independent School District for 5 years. I stayed home with our children for a number of years and returned to teaching in 2006.
My husband Mark and I have been married for 29 years. We have 2 daughters Allysa and Abby. Allysa is a graduate from Texas A&M. She lives in San Antonio and is in marketing. Abby is starting her fourth year at Oklahoma City University and is majoring in dance. The other members of our family are our two dogs Ellie and Emma. I enjoy being with my family, cooking, reading, working out, and going to the beach.
