Mel Sumers - 2nd
Hi Wimberley Texans! I'm super excited to be your student's 2nd grade teacher! I have been teaching for 16 years, 6 of which have been at Jacob's Well Elementary.
I was born and raised in Edinburg/McAllen, Texas, which is located at the very bottom of Texas. After high school, I moved to Waco, where I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science Degree. My degree led me to work in the fashion industry, however, I soon discovered that my true passion was working with children. My path quickly changed after I returned to college at Texas State University and obtained a degree in education as well.
My husband is an Aggie who also grew up in the Rio Grande Valley. We've been married for 31 years and have 3 wonderful sons. Our oldest is 27 and our twins are 16. The twins are sophomores at WHS and are dreaming about college life. Our family enjoys traveling, hanging out at the beach, watching movies, playing video games, and rooting for the Texans! We have been Wimberley Texans for 15 years. Go Texans!
At JWE, I work with a fabulous group of educators. I hope your family enjoys out school as must as I do! Welcome to our JWE family!
