Ms. Elizabeth Adams

My name is Ms. Adams. This is my first year at Energy and I teach environmental sustainability engineering. I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and moved to Houston to when I was 18. I attended Houston Baptist University for my undergrad where I played Division 1 soccer and received my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology - Wellness Management. I worked in healthcare before deciding to return to HBU to coach my old college team and study to receive my Masters of Education. I'm excited to get know each of you this year!

Ms. Rebecca De La Rosa

Ms. De La Rosa found her way to teaching via a circuitous bumpy road that consisted of few years wrapping presents at Macy's and a stint as an Entertainment Supervisor and costume character at AstroWorld  (where she met a teenage Beyonce), all-the-while working for her bachelor's degree. Upon graduating from UH, she found her way to Waltrip High School as permanent sub #8; there she knew she found her home in education. She spent the waning days of her twenties and all her thirties at Waltrip. Then, in 2014, she was fortunate enough to land at Energy Institute High School, where she has taught every grade level - and most of the students who have ever attended here. 

Ms. De La Rosa is the sponsor of the Energy High School National Honor Society and is an Ambassador and Project Team Leader for the Travis Manion Foundation. She is the AP Language and Composition Lead Teacher for HISD.

Hello there! I'm Julian Platón and I teach US History and Visual Media Production at Energy. This will be my tenth year teaching and my sixth year at Energy. I am driven by a desire to help students think critically and become citizens. I like to engage students with simulations that replicate historical forces.  I look forward to helping you make sense of the world!
