Current Position:

The 2020-2021 academic year marks my 16th year serving the community here at Finley Elementary.

Before that, I had already worked for the United Independent School District for 7 years.

I began my educational career back in 1993 as a Kinder Teacher at Perez Elementary.  I worked at Perez for 5 years.  One year as a Kinder Teacher, 1 ½ as a Physical Education Teacher & 2 ½ as an Elementary School Counselor.  

From 1998 to 2001, I was a School Counselor at Los Obispos Middle School.

Family Information:

Married in 1993  to Hector H. Canales.  

Mother to 2 wonderful girls.  Both of them attended Finley Elementary, Trautman Middle School & United High School.  The eldest daughter is presently a 3rd-year student at the University of Texas at Austin and the youngest one began her 1st year at Texas A&M, Kingsville.

With my two daughters off to college, my husband and I are officially ‘empty-nesters’; however, we do have a furry companion – our dog Italo.

 

Personal Information:

I enjoy spending time with my family.

I love to travel & experience new places & cultures.

I enjoy ‘extreme’ activities.

I love to experiment with new food (no insects, though!)

I like to assist my husband with his side-business; house flipping.
