Mrs. Mary Whitaker
7th & 8th Grade English Language Arts teacher Mary Whitaker writes: "One of the greatest pieces of advice I received as an educator was from a former principal, Martha Gomez, who often said, 'Always do what is best for the students.'" Beginning her career as a 4th-8th grade teacher at St. Gregory the Great in San Antonio, next substituting 3 years at BISD, and then spending the last 4 years as a 7th grade Writing teacher at Comfort ISD, this motto shines thru in all that she does.
Although she left a part of her heart back in the Midwest where she was born, raised, and attended college, she has loved calling Boerne home for the past twenty years. Her husband is a Boerne High graduate, their two boys attend schools in the district, and she is honored and thrilled to join her family by calling herself a Greyhound!
It is evident the impact of her earlier experiences and the wise words of her mentor have had on her career. Mrs. Whitaker is quoted saying, "When you provide students a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow, with keeping their best interests at heart, the possibilities are endless on what students can achieve." This year being her first at BMSN, she is excited to share her love of the English language with her students and watch the possiblities unfold.
