Hello Longhorn Family!

My name is Kamiya White and I am excited about the 2016-17 school year! This is my first year at Bessie Coleman, my 10th year teaching in the CHISD, and my 13th year in Education. I am teaching 7th and 8th grade Read 180 and coaching volleyball, basketball, and track. I am from Wichita Falls, Texas and am a graduate of Wichita Falls High School. I furthered my education at Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas where I majored in Mass Communications with a minor in Digital Media. I wanted to be a broadcast journalist, but GOD had other plans for me! Being an educator is not just a job, but a calling and has brought great joy to my life. I look forward to developing meaningful and lifelong relationships with my students and parents. If you ever have any suggestions, questions, or concerns please don't hesistate to reach out.

My philosophy on education: "Learning is something that should happen every day. You don't grow if you're not learning. All students can learn, and they learn in different ways. It's important for educators to diversify the learning process. The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary."
