Mrs. Cabeza

Hello, my name is Bonnie Cabeza and I teach 7th grade ELAR (both Honors and Regular) and SSI at Lopez Middle School. I was born and raised in Durham, NC and was therefore conditioned to be a huge college basketball fan (go Duke!).  I attended the Univeristy 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 ELA, and then moved to Houston, where I've spent the last five years continuing to teach ELA 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.  In my free time I love reading, painting, running, visiting coffee shops, watching football, and spending time with my family.
