Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

Week of March 16th


Our theme at Sigler Elementary this year is "connecting". Each week we will capture images of our Sigler Community connecting in four vital areas; curriculum, community, students and staff. We will showcase the images below for all to enjoy and remind ourselves of the power of a connectivity!

Staff Spotlight - Mrs. Leola Simental - First Grade Teacher

Each week, staff members at Sigler Elementary have opportunity to be in the "spotlight" and share a little bit about themselves with our readers.

Get to Know Mrs. Simental - First Grade Teacher

My name is Leola Simental. I have been teaching at Sigler for 13 years. Sigler is my home away from home. I graduated from University of Texas Pan American with Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. My mother was a teacher. I spent a lot of my childhood grading papers and helping around the classroom. I always wanted to be a teacher; I guess you can say it is in my blood.

I live in Carrollton with my wonderful husband who teaches as well. We have two adorable kids. Our son Andrew is 8 years old. He is so full of energy. He loves sports especially basketball. He aspires to play for NBA when he grows up. Our daughter Aryssa is a very active 1 year old, who keeps us on our toes. It is so exciting to see her discover new things. I can tell she is going to be a very free spirited little girl. We love to spend time as family playing outdoors and visiting museums.

I really love what I do and I am very privileged to be able to do it at a school I love. It truly is my second home!
