Ms. Diana Reyes

English Language Arts, 7th Grade Dual Language Academy

Conference Periods: 2A and 3B

Ms. Reyes is a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin where she studied Sociology and Portuguese. Her primary focus of interest was the societal factors that impact education, and with the knowledge she obtained through her studies, she worked in Bastrop, TX, assisting homeless young people to access their education under the McKinney-Vento Act. After moving back to Houston, Ms. Reyes decided to take the opportunity to join the faculty at Burbank Middle School and teach English Language Arts in the 6th Grade Excel Academy. Following a very successful first year, she was elected Burbank Middle School Beginning Teacher of the Year for 2022-2023 by her peers. 

Since Ms. Reyes loves new learning opportunities, she has accepted to teach 7th grade English Language Arts in the Dual Language Academy. She believes that no matter the circumstances, the opportunity to learn will be the biggest gift that no one can ever take away from you, and she's modeling that for her students. Ms. Reyes wants her students to know how much they deserve a well-rounded education and how much they should take advantage of every opportunity available to them.
