Mrs. Mary Pritchard

My name is Mary Pritchard, and I'm a displaced Californian who found herself in San Antonio, Texas after her husband's job transfer over 20 years ago. I have been in education, both classroom teaching and administration, at the high school, college and university level for 35 years.  My love is the classroom, and particularly the senior English classroom. Senior year can be a tough one, filled with big decisions, transitions, and uncertainties. I try to help my students negotiate these challenges with authentic academic support, honest talk, and sometimes a little bit of motherly advice.

I have been widowed for many years, but despite that, I managed as a single mother to raise a remarkable daughter, Samantha Pritchard (Johnson HS c/o '20), who is studying history at St. Edward's University in Austin and planning a career as an archivist.  

I am owned by two bad cats, Pip and Olive June.
