Mrs. Deanna Cupero

Hello Wilderness Oak Wolves! My name is Deanna Cupero, and I am the Dyslexia Therapist at Wilderness Oak.  I feel blessed to be teaching and working with students at the best school in San Antonio!  I have been teaching for 25 years, and have been at Wilderness Oak since it opened 17 years ago. I transitioned to dyslexia therapy 3 years ago.  I love our school community and I am passionate about educating children and helping students find success in reading.  Providing valuable therapy for students with dyslexia to learn to read and discover their "superpowers" is my passion.  

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, earning 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 for 30 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 3rd grade.  My youngest daughter attended UT Tyler and is a Neuro PCU nurse at a local hospital.  I am a very proud mom! We also have one very cute and cuddly dog, Presley. I love my cuddle time with Presley, reading, swimming, shopping, and spending time with friends and family. I look forward to an awesome year filled with reading, fun, and excitement!
