Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Megan Kinback,
Sunset Valley Elementary Teacher of the Year!

Ms. Kinback has been a teacher for 9 years. Before coming to Sunset Valley she taught at Pecan Springs, Palm and Houston.

Her proudest moment was the day she was contacted by a former student who is attending the Ann Richard's School. That student's assignment was to interview and write about a successful woman who had changed her life.
