In her own words . . .

“As an educator, I have the responsibility to provide my students with the very best education possible. It is my duty to be the very best in my subject area. In order to improve as an individual and professional, I make it my goal to take advantage of anything that will help me grow as a professional and become an even better educator. I participate in professional developments, I’m an active member of my professional association, and most importantly I’m an active member of the Spring Branch ISD Community.”

In the words of others . . .

“Ms. Guillen is a dynamic and inspiring educator. She is a former student of SBISD and takes pride in her involvement in the district outside of the classroom.” 
Michele Hilberth, Former Academy of Choice Director 

“Serving the Spring Branch community also plays a major part in Lucia’s life. As a product of SBISD schools and a graduate of Northbrook High, both she and her husband support district activities from the SBISD Education Foundation Gala to rushing to the aid of residents this past summer when the Gentry House sustained a fire in the middle of the night.”
