Miss Avila grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, and joined the U.S. Army right after high school. She served active duty for three years and decided that teaching was her calling! She attended and graduated from Tarleton State University. During that time she also served in the Texas national Guard for six years. After graduating from Tarleton she was hired by Fort Worth Independent School District. She taught fourth and fifth grade math and science dual language for four years at DeZavala Elementary School. She moved to Edmond during the summer of 2018, and is excited to teach at Clegern. She loves the family feel of Clegern and is very excited to be a part of the Clegern staff!
