Mrs. Kylie Flores
Hi there, I'm Kylie Flores and I am the Special Education teacher for PK-8th grade at the Waxahachie campus.
I have been teaching since January 2020 and have a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Early Childhood-6th grade) and Special Education (PK-12th grade). I am so thrilled to be working at Advantage Academy! I am, also, so grateful to have the best job in the world. I love coming to work and seeing all of the students daily!
I love to know who my students are outside of their academics, and I know some want to know me outside of teaching. So here is a little bit about me. I have been married to Francisco since November 2019 and we currently have a Blue Russian cat, Stooki, and two Golden doodles, Daphne and Murphy. They are my world! I am a child of two United States Marines. Therefore, I have moved numerous times in my childhood. I've lived in places like New Orleans, Atlanta, West Virginia and, of course, Texas!! I was born in Arlington, so it is cool to make it full circle and end up here in Waxahachie! Crafting, being outdoors, playing sports or being with my family are things I love.
Currently, I am pursuing my Master's in Special Education at Midwestern State University. There are many reasons that opened my eyes and led me down the path of education. I have been motivated to go into education since I was a young child. As I got more involved in the education field, it fueled my passion more and more. I am a teacher to influence, inspire and make a difference. As well as, many unlisted things that helped get me where I am today and get where I am going. I have built a toolbox that excites me everyday, learned so many things from students and will continue learning from students in the future.
