Ms. Yvette Peña

Hi everyone! Welcome to my website - I am the 9th grade World Geography teacher at ISA. My family is originally from the Dominican Republic, but I grew up in McAllen, Texas. I moved to San Antonio in 2014 to attend Trinity University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. My time at Trinity and previous work experiences at Casa RAICES and the Learning Policy Institute inspired me to pursue a career in education and teaching.

 

In May 2019, I completed a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) at Trinity University. During the MAT program, I interned in this same 9th-grade World Geography classroom for 7 months, as well as a 10th-grade World History and 12th-grade AP Government classroom at LEE High School. I am so excited to be back at ISA, and am looking forward to this year! 

  • At ISA, World Geography is usually blocked with English. This means that students will stay in our classroom for two periods.
