Aleta was born in Newport News, Virginia and found herself in Houston, Texas after she graduated from high school in Louisiana. Her education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry from Houston Baptist University where she fell in love with teaching.
Through a service project with the Texas Master Gardener’s program in Fort Bend County, Aleta discovered the Monarch School. The people and mission of the Monarch School captured her heart and passion to engage students through hands-on, project-based learning. Aleta returns to The Monarch School after first joining Monarch in 2004 and has served learners in Math, Science, Life Academy, and Residential Services. Aleta is most passionate about helping others grow, embrace strengths, and discover the world of possibilities.
In her spare time Aleta enjoys gardening, reading, nature, helping people live more sustainably, and visiting friends and family.
