Math Interventionist

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!
My name is Katherine Vara and I am the Math Interventionist for HMS. I am looking forward to my third year here at HMS. This is my 17th year as a middle school Math teacher.
I was born and raised in the Houston area. I graduated with honors from the University of Houston. I spent thirteen years as a 8th grade Math and Algebra One teacher at Fort Bend Independent School District in Sugarland Texas. My first year in Austin I taught 6th Math at Fulmore Middle School Magnate program.
I enjoy the outdoors, some of my favorite things are running, bicycling, fishing and spending time with family and friends.
