Mrs. Monica Lum
Hi there, I'm Monica Vasquez Lum. I am extremely excited to start my second year here at Natalia ISD in my new position as the high school English 2 teacher! I look forward to using my passion and love of teaching English Laguage Arts and Reading to ensure all students excel to the best of their abilities. With hard work, dedication, and collaboration among all Natalia ISD staff, parents, and community, I believe this year will bring great things for ALL students.
I am delighted to share the love of learning with my students. I received my undergraduate degree from UTSA, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Education. I earned my graduate degree from the University of Texas A&M San Antonio in Counseling and Guidance.
I strongly believe that self-care is very important. Therefore, I enjoy painting, meditating and spending time with my family! My son is a graduate of Texas Tech University and my daughter is a college student at Texas State University.
One of my ongoing goals is to instill the knowledge and importance of secondary education, so that all students are aware of what awaits them beyond high school.
I look forward to a great year!!!
