About Ms. Viera

ESOL Teacher

Teacher of the Year, 2017-18

I am originally from Puerto Rico. I have been happily married for 33 years. My kids, no so young anymore, are called Kamilah, Keila, Janah, and my youngest Josiah. My teacher career started when I homeschooled my own children. Later, I graduated from Texas Wesleyan. This began my career outside of my home. Since then, I have been teaching children other than my own. Being around my students and seeing their eyes brighten with learning feels my heart with gladness.
