Originally from El Paso, Mrs. Álvarez-Sims joined THES in 2014. She loves watching her students learn and grow throughout the year. Like her mother and grandmother, she guides her students to become lifelong learners. She loves being a dual language teacher and teaching in English and Spanish! It’s exciting to see two worlds open up for her students as they learn two languages. This upcoming year she will be working towards her Master’s degree at UT Austin.
Her favorite THES tradition is the Appreciation Pump and her favorite colors are green and pink. Mrs. Álvarez-Sims lives with her husband, their two kitties, Cleo and Gaius, and their puppy Obi. In her spare time she runs and loves to travel. She’s visited Mexico, Peru, France, and Italy.
