BBI Staff Spotlight!
Ms. Karen Foux
6th grade Art Teacher
How long have you been at BBI? 15 years
Where are you from and where did you grow up? I live in Tomball but moved here 26 years ago. I grew up in Louisiana.
What inspired you to work with children? I am from a large family with a lot of children. Making art goes hand in hand with the imagination of a child. This is why I choose to teach art to children.
What is your favorite book? I read scripture daily...so yeah the Bible.
What was your favorite subject in school? Other than art class I would say it was science.
If you could learn to do one thing, what would it be? I always wanted to learn to play an musical instrument. Maybe play the piano or guitar.
If you could have any other career, what would it be? I would maybe like to be a curator or art dealer. Working for Christie's in NYC.
Who do you consider your hero? My hero is my late cousin Angela. She was brave, strong and fought until the end. She showed me that we must always live our best life even in the darkest times.
People would be surprised to know…I have driven across the US all alone when I was in my early twenties.
Camp Be An Angel
Camp Be An Angel is offered three times each year to economically challenged families (usually those receiving some form of monthly subsistence) caring for special needs children. The invitation is extended to all immediate family members and those living in the household that could not safely be left home alone up to a maximum of seven. From Friday evening through Sunday morning the family can enjoy a barrier-free, caring environment full of fun and fellowship. This 206-acre camp features 100,000 square feet of facilities, specially geared to those with chronic illnesses or disabilities through a host of unique programs and activities. The facility is designed to foster a complete family camping experience (in shared cabins) with wide, gently sloping concrete walkways linking facilities to maximize mobility for campers in wheelchairs. The entrances to all buildings and areas are wheelchair accessible. Everything is well thought out and oriented toward your child’s safety and enjoyment. All activities are accessible regardless of disability. A respite cabin will be available during the weekend to provide any needed down time for special needs children.
The camp offers both family and individual activities:
- Horseback Riding
- Nature walks, Campfires
- Petting Zoo
- Arts & Crafts
- And Much More!
Be An Angel provides all funding for this retreat including a $25 gasoline voucher that will be given to families prior to departure from camp. In order to provide a camping experience for as many families as possible, we reserve the right to place multiple families per cabin as space allows. Camps are offered in September, February, and April. Space is limited and applications will be considered on the basis of timely submission, need and prior camp participation.
Camp registration usually opens approximately 6 weeks prior to camp.
Only on-line applications are accepted.

BBI Staff Spotlight!
Mrs. Marcy Porrata
5th grade ELAR Teacher
How long have you been at BBI? 2nd year
Where are you from and where did you grow up? I was born and raised in Bryan/College Station. I have lived in this area for two years.
What inspired you to work with children? I've always wanted to work with children in some capacity. I started my career working at the Boys & Girls Club which fostered my love for children and giving them guidance in life and in their education.
What is your favorite book? Where the Crawdads Sing
What was your favorite subject in school? Reading
If you could learn to do one thing, what would it be? To play the piano. I took three years of piano as a child but didn't keep up with it.
If you could have any other career, what would it be? I would love to be an event planner.
Who do you consider your hero? My Pawpaw is my hero. He is the most selfless person I've ever known. He worked hard to accomplish his dreams and become a successful business owner. He is 94 and lives each day like it's his last... still meeting friends for coffee, driving the tractor and working the land, and still doing for others instead of himself. He continually shows good character through his words and his actions.
People would be surprised to know… I was an Agriculture major.
