Miss. Vannessa Williams
Hello SECOND grade!! My name is Vannessa Williams and this will be my second-year teaching, and my secondcyear at the Ranch! I went to UTSA and obtained my teaching certification after graduating from Baylor University with a BA in International Studies in 2014, Sic’Em Bears. Baylor University is just 3 hours away from San Antonio and I visit whenever I have the chance. Waco is now known for Magnolia Silos/Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gains, and yes I have been there!
I enjoy outdoor activities, Baylor football, MLB, a crisp ice-cold Coca-Cola, and traveling in and outside of the United States with family and friends. I have a fat cat named Bali, an older brother who lives in Maryland, and a little sister who graduated from Texas State with a degree in history and is now applying for Optometry School. I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA until I moved here when I was 16, but I consider myself a Texan now, even better though, I’m a Texas teacher!
I can't wait to share my love of teaching with 22 students! Last year I taught 4th grade reading and I had almost 62 kiddos so I am very excited to keep my kiddos ALL DAY and have a few of siblings of my 4th graders! Two of my favorite subjects have been social studies and reading all my life. I hope to spread my love in both subjects to my students and globally teaching around the world one day. Growing up I enjoyed reading Junie B. Jones, Harry Potter, and mystery series. We are going to have such an amazing school year, so let the fun begin!!
