Mrs. Avila - English 2

Hello, Mavericks! 


My name is Kathryn Avila, and I teach English 2 at Manvel High School. I grew up in the beautiful town of Estes Park, Colorado, but I was born here in Pasadena, Texas. I graduated college at Baylor University in Waco, Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English/Language Arts/Reading. Sic 'Em Bears!


I am passionate about teaching and all things about English as a subject. Ask me anytime what my favorite punctuation mark is, or how I feel about poetry, or my thoughts on creative writing - I love it all, and I love sharing these passions with my students! 


In my free time, I love to read, write, and bake cookies. My three favorite things in the whole world are: my husband, Leo; my family; and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. 


I am excited for this school year and the chance to meet our new (and returning) Mavericks.
