Mrs. Neal

I started college at The University of Texas San Antonio as an Interior Design major.  I loved my art and design classes, but after three years - yes, THREE years - I decided that was not the right path for me.  I immediately knew I wanted to teach.  There was no question about that!  I wanted to teach art, since art was in my background, but my counselor guided me in a different direction, since art teachers are few and far between.  I chose elementary education, which I loved from the very beginning!

I began my teaching career as a first grade teacher.  I taught first grade for two years and then moved to third grade, which I also taught for two years.  After four years in the classroom, the librarian position became available.  I loved books and reading, so I this was the perfect job for me!  (It was much more difficult than I thought it would be, but it all worked out in the long run.)  I've been a librarian for twenty-one years, and I feel it's the absolutely PERFECT job!

All twenty-five years of my career in education have been at Wiederstein.  I even completed one of my student teaching semesters at Wiederstein!  Wiederstein is my second home.

I have been happily married for twenty years, and we have two beautiful daughters. Not only is Wiederstein a great school to work at, but it has been the best school for my own children! My oldest is a junior at Samuel Clemens. My youngest is a 9th grader at Clemens. 

I graduated from Samuel Clemens High School, so Schertz-Cibolo has been my home for a long time.  I feel so fortunate to live and work with such wonderful people!
