Hello Highland Forest families! My name is Vanessa Gutierrez and this year marks my 18th year as an educator at ECISD. I have been in the district my entire life! I was a student from Kindergarten to 12th grade! I loved my district and my community so much that it was important to me to give back. I started out as a paraprofessional and did that for 7 years while attending college full time. When I graduated from Texas A&M San Antonio, I was hired to teach kindergarten at Harmony Elementary. I taught kindergarten for 6 years and 1st grade for 2 years. I have been a Special Education Co-Teacher at Highland Forest for the last 3 years. I am very excited to start this new school year and meet my students.
I hope to see you all during 1st Grade's Meet The Teacher on Friday, August 14th from 8:00am to 10:00am OR
from 4:00pm to 6:30pm in the front of our school.
