My name is Astrid Leija. I am a Special Education Teacher.
I graduated from Texas A&M University - Kingsville with a Masters in Education. I have lived in Kingsville for the past 20 years and started working for Kingsville Independent School District in 2010. I've spent 5 of those years working as a Special Education Teacher at the Elementary Level. In a short time span, I have come to know my co-workers and built a professional relationship with everyone in my area. The students are my passion and have always been the driving force behind my willingness to educate. Regardless, of any limitations they may or may not have, it is my belief as an educator that we can help build strong minds if we continue to nurture the educational needs of students. No matter what boundaries are set, teachers can shatter them all!
