Ms. Victoria Cortina
Hi everyone! I’m Victoria Cortina, and this is my first year teaching :) I graduated from Texas Woman’s University with my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition in 2021, and began my Master of Arts in Teaching degree right after. I have worked with kids my entire life (as a substitute teacher, a taekwondo instructor, a gymnastics coach, a nanny, you name it), so deciding that I was meant to be a teacher shortly before my graduation was a surprise to no one! Kindergarten has been my dream grade since starting my Master’s degree. I feel SO fortunate to be not only a kinder teacher, but also a Mitchell Meteor!
I was born in San Antonio, but have been in Dallas for 20+ years (don’t worry, go Mavs!) I have a dog named Zuko who loves to go on runs with me, snuggle while I read, and lets me dress him up in all sorts of clothes (t shirts, hoodies, beanies, overalls, a tuxedo, rain boots… he’s a fashionable boy). Zuko also goes to taekwondo with me, where I’m a second degree black belt and hold a few national championship titles :) I also love cooking vegan meals, going to the gym, listening to music, and being with my best friends.
