All About Mrs. Molinari
Welcome to Mambrino STEAM Academy! You are at the best school in Granbury! I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve the STEAM Academy @ Mambrino Elementary as the School Counselor this year. I would like to take a few minutes to introduce myself.
My husband Luke and I have been married for 24 years. I have known my husband since I was 9 years old. We grew up in Plano, TX and decided Plano is not where we wanted to raise a family. We moved to Granbury 19 years ago, due to my husband’s job. We have an 18-year-old son named Gage who is in his Freshman year at Texas A&M, an 14 year named Wade who is a freshman at the High School, and a sweet 12-year old young lady named Bren who is in 6th Grade! We are experiencing many new transitions this year and I am looking forward to the excitement. We live on 11 acres in Acton and love being out in the country. We have 6 dogs(please don't judge)-Butch, Sam, Ollie, Lola, Julia & Hope, 2 donkeys-Comet & Ester, and lots of chickens.This is my 22nd year as an educator. I taught kindergarten for 10 years, 5th grade for 5 years, Instructional Coach for 1 year and this is my sixth year as a counselor. I loved teaching kindergarteners and 5th graders! I feel like I have a great understanding of where students begin in learning and where they need to be before they leave elementary school. I graduated from Texas A & M-Commerce with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a specialization in Early Childhood. I am certified to teach PreK-6th grade. I am also certified in English as a Second Language and Gifted/Talented. I have a Master of Education degree in School Counseling from Lamar University.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We enjoy camping, motorcycle riding, fishing, hiking, skating, playing games, being outside and exploring new places. I enjoy reading mystery books, baking sweets, music, dancing, eating out, sushi, Mexican food, learning and having fun.
I am looking forward to a great year! Be sure to take time to enjoy the small moments each day because before you know it this year will be over! Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions/concerns about school.
Thank you for your support, cooperation and time!
