My name is Nora Kirby and I will begin my 28th year of teaching. I have taught various grades and have also been an Instructional Facilitator at Gardendale Elementary. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Elementary Education (certified PK through 6th grade) from the University of Texas at San Antonio and have a Masters in Educational Leadership from St. Mary's University. I have a daughter named Samantha, who graduated with a B.A. from the University of Texas in Austin. HOOK 'EM HORNS!! I have been here at Cardenas since they reopened 10 years ago and really enjoy working with the little ones because they make me laugh!
