Hello, my name is Bonnie Cabeza and I am entering my 12th year in education! I am honored to be the ELAR Instructional Coach at Krueger Middle School. This year I will teach one section of 6th grade ELAR and one section of 7th. I was born and raised in Durham, NC and was therefore conditioned to be a huge college basketball fan (go Duke!). I attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI, and graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. My intention was to go on to law school, but I decided instead to join Teach For America where I fell in love with the field of education. I completed two years with Teach For America in San Antonio teaching 6th grade ELAR and then moved to Houston, where I spent five years continuing to teach ELAR and then as the school's Literacy Specialist. After five years, I returned to San Antonio with my husband, our two young boys, and our three dogs. In April 2020, we were blessed to welcome a baby girl to our family. This past year, I obtained my Master's of Education from Schreiner University. In my free time, I love to read, paint, run, visit coffee shops, watch football, and spend time with my family. This year, in addition to teaching, I will be going back to school to obtain my Doctorate of Education from Baylor University in Waco, TX. Wish me luck!
