Welcome to Charla's Page
Welcome to my portfolio. I am a second generation Texas educator in my thirtieth year of teaching. The dream of becoming a great 'explainer' began at the age of five, and that was several years ago!
I have four driving passions and I believe to know them is to come to understand me. My first passion is my

Small districts are at a crossroads to success or consolidation.
These are exciting times in education. I'm thrilled to be along for the ride. Come on in and see if you find anything of interest.
