First Grade Teacher
My name is Vi Figueroa (pronounced like the letter V), and I’m one of the first grade teachers here at Dooley! Many of my students, colleagues, and parents know me as Mrs. Fig. I’m a Plano ISD K-12 alumnus who couldn’t help but come back to the district to teach the next generation. My teaching passion is rooted in an unshakeable love for and belief in kids, and I particularly enjoy personalizing learning to my students and helping to spark and guide the cross-curricular and real-world connections that form meaningful learning. I also LOVE children's books. In my free time, I love to relax with my family, READ, take pictures, and engage in crafty activities such as crochet.
