Karen Fimbrez, RN

Hello my name is Karen Fimbrez, RN and I am so glad to be the school nurse here at AV Cato Elementary.

I am a Kindergarten through graduation Castleberry Alumni. I married my husband, Frank Fimbrez and we moved to River Oaks to raise our children in the community and to be educated through CISD because truely love what we have here, it is rare.

Nursing is my second career, I first, taught and directed preschool for over 10 years so I have a more than a nurse's eye view of a student and I know what it's like to struggle as a student, an educator and a parent.

This year I seek to BE available, encouraging , organized, proactive and diligent!

My goals this school year are to BE

I will BE Available! (both physically and emotionally for my students, parents and staff)

I will BE Encouraging!

I will BE Organized!

I will BE Proactive!

I will BE Diligent!
