Mrs. Whitney Briseno

My Manifesto for Learning
I believe learning needs to be authentic and engaging.
I believe in being a facilitator of learning rather than a deliverer of information.
I believe in empowering learners by giving them the confidence to take risks and providing them a safe place to struggle.
I believe that what my students become is as important as what they learn.
I believe it is passion and hard work that change the world.

     Mrs. Briseno was born and raised in San Antonio. She is a proud graduate of North East ISD. After graduating from Churchill High School, she went to The University of Texas to pursue a degree in Education with a minor in Mathematics,  Hook 'em Horns! Before teaching G/T, she has been lucky to teach 1st, 2nd, and 5th in North East. 

     She married the love of her life in 2013! They met at Eisenhower Middle School, and the rest is history. In her free time, she enjoys exercising, reading and spending time with her family at the beach.

     This is her 5th year as a Gifted and Talented teacher, and she is truly beyond blessed to be working with the students at Northwood and Wilshire.
