Hello My Name Is...

Coach Karenrose Vela

I was raise in the Hill Country while attending Ingram Tom Moore High School (don't hold that against me). I graduated college from Texas A&M (Whoop!) in 2004 and was a proud member of the track team while in college.  My senior year I won the Big XII Conference in the Discus.  I also held the school record at A&M for ten years before it was broken last spring.  I went back to school in 2006 to get my teaching certification from Sul Ross University in Alpine while I was teaching and coaching in Fort Stockton, Texas.  I made the decision to move back to Kerrville 9 years ago.  I have been teaching AP Physics for the past 8 years at Tivy.  I coach JV Volleyball and Varsity/JV Track.  
My world revolves around my husband, my son, and the young adults that I teach/coach. To be educated is so important to me.  I decided in May of 2014 to return to school once again to receive my Masters in Educational Leadership and Principal Certification.  Now that I captured that Masters, I have re-enrolled in school to get my Masters in Physics.  I hope to inspire my students and my son to never sell themselves short.....we can always improve ourselves and grow.....no matter where we come from.
