Mrs. Teri James

I started my teaching career in Maryland and Pennsylvania and taught for ten years in a variety of settings--classroom teacher, reading specialist, G/T specialist in elementary, middle, and high schools, adjunct professor for elementary ed undergraduates, private tutor, and adult literacy instructor.

I began teaching in NEISD in 2009 at Encino Park Elementary School.  In 2015, I moved to Serna Elementary School as the Literacy Instructional Coach.  I am excited to return to Encino Park Elementary and serve as the Instructional Interventionist.  When I'm not busy with school activities, I enjoy reading, cooking and exercising.  My husband and I have four children (two in high school and two in college) so we spend lots of our family time supporting and cheering them on in their many sports, academic, musical, and artistic pursuits. I love spending time with family and friends.

So excited to "come home" to Encino Park Elementary!
