    Hello, my name is Irma Silas and I am the 5th Grade SIP Teacher.

    I was born in Los Angeles, California but raised in El Paso, Texas.  I joined the Air Force right after high school and served for 8 1/2 years.  A highlight of my career was an assignment to Germany where I served for three wonderful years.  After separating from the Air Force I pursued a college degree majoring in Elementary Education.  This will be my 19th year of teaching with 18 of those years in the Texas School System.

    I met my husband while I was in the Air Force.  He was an Air Force Pilot with a career of flying multiple military aircraft.  After his military service, he continued his aviation career as a commercial pilot with Northwest Airlines and then Delta Airlines.  He is now retired.  He is an amazing person who lets me devote a large amount of my time and energy doing what I love to do best - teaching children.

    I have a daughter attending Atascocita High School.  She participated in the Spanish Immersion Program (SIP) at Pine Forest and Creekwood Middle School.  It is through her I get a glimpse as to how to prepare my students for the next level of SIP at Creekwood and West Lake Middle School. She is also my go-to person for technology assistance.  She is amazing in that she is organized, a problem solver, has learned how to do minor maintenance on our automobiles with my husband and she has a great sense of humor.  I'm so glad that she has rhythm and can dance, I can't.

    I am looking forward to another amazing school year!  Follow me on Twitter at @IrmaSilas and @pfefifth.
