A little about Miss Yaheli
I’m an industrial engineer with a passion for teaching. I started teaching while going to college and I knew right away that was my calling. I think kids should have fun while they learn; I enjoy telling silly jokes, making funny voices, dancing around, and doing whatever it takes to engage students, motivate them to participate, and help them feel safe and confident. My husband and I moved to Texas 6 years ago and we love it! We have 3 boys, ages 10, 6 and 1. We like playing video games, board games, jigsaw puzzles, reading, and tacos!
