Katrina Hester

A South Carolina native, I moved to Texas in October 2019.  I have been teaching English and Journalism for 21 years in 3 states. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, enjoying getting outside, reading, or pursuing my hobbies.  My husband and I love photography.  This year will be my first year at Plano West, my second year in Plano ISD, my third school newspaper, and my 15th yearbook to advise.  I'm looking forward to working with parents and students to show off all the academics, athletics, clubs, and school events that make Plano West a great school!
