In her own words . . .

“I teach PreK children ages 4 to 5 years old to be true bilingual citizens, to read and write, their numbers, the alphabet, to sing, to use a pair of scissors, and to socialize and be independent children who are able to follow routines. For me, working in bilingual education in the United States of America is very rewarding and extremely important.”

In the words of others . . .

“Ms. Michel exhibits all the attributes Spring Branch ISD values in a teacher. Katya is an energetic, joyful, compassionate, passionate and caring educator.” 
- Vivian Pratts, Edgewood Principal/Bilingual ESL Dept. Director
