Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Susan Talavera
All three of my (adult) children attended Mitchell Elementary and graduated from Plano West SHS. We moved here from Maryland over 28 years ago and have lived in the Mitchell neighborhood the entire time. I was a stay-at-home mom that rarely stayed home. I volunteered practically full-time for PTA, booster clubs, dance teams, National Charity League, Girl Scouts, etc. When my youngest left home for college, I retired from volunteer work and joined the staff at Mitchell as school secretary. I’m loving it! (Before my stay-at-home mom career, I worked as a professional secretary).
My husband, Henry, and I enjoy spending time together and visiting our children when we can. My oldest daughter, Katrina, and her husband, Kyle, live in Baton Rouge and gave us our first grandchild, Amelia, in September 2019. Our son, Nick, lives in San Francisco and is a Data Engineer. Our youngest daughter, Marissa, graduated from Texas A&M University in May 2021, with a major in Mechanical Engineering. She now works as a Systems Engineer in Grand Prairie and attends SMU at night pursuing her Master's Degree. My parents and my brother and his family live in Plano, so we get to spend time with them often, as well.
