Moses Lira will be the new Economic and World History teacher at Center Point High School and will be an assistance coach for Middle School football, High School football, High School basketball and tennis. Mr. Lira was born and raised in San Antonio, where he attended and graduated from McCollum High School. From San Antonio he moved to Austin, Texas where he attended the University of Texas at Austin. In just over three years he earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Government and minored in German.
He decided to pursue a career in education during his senior year in college. Upon graduating from UT, he returned to San Antonio, where he worked as a substitute teacher for over two years, working over 300 school days at over 70 school campuses, from Pre-K to 12th grade. Last year he was hired for his first teaching position by the Corpus Christi-area community of Ingleside, where he taught Economics, Government, Spanish and U.S. History to nearly 100 students, and coached middle school football, basketball, and track & field to over 50 middle school students. However, he sought to secure a job closer to his family in San Antonio and closer to Austin, where he often goes during the fall to attend Texas Longhorn football games. He is very excited to meet and greet the entire Center Point community and be of help however possible to our community.
Morgan Meyer received her bachelor's degree from Tarleton State University in Agriculture Services and Development with an emphasis in education. She is starting her 4th year in education with the previous 3 years spent in Northeast Texas. Her husband Justin is a home inspector in the San Antonio area and her daughter Kyndal is 4 years old. Kyndal's goals in life are to be a princess and a pig showman. She would prefer to show the pigs in her princess dress if possible.
Kathy Robertson is a current CPISD employee who is moving over to the High School to teach the technology classes. She will also be the sponsor of FBLA and yearbook clubs. This is her 20th year is public school, with the last ten being in Center Point. This is the 1st year teaching, as the last 19 years have been behind the scenes in various secretarial positions. Mrs. Robertson has a senior who will be graduating at the end of this school year. She is looking forward to what this school year has to offer.
We would like to welcome you to our Secondary School Open House on August 23rd from 6 – 8 pm. We will be holding our open house in conjunction with our elementary campus. Therefore, we have extended the time of our open house to allow parents who have students on each campus to attend both events. Parents and students will be able to meet their teachers for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. If you need a copy of your child’s schedule, we will have them at the front office. Teachers will be available to answer some of your questions regarding their classes. If you would like to discuss specifics regarding your child, you will also have the opportunity to schedule a parent/teacher conference.
We hope you can find the time to join us for our Open House. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 634-2244.
