    Hello!  My name is Deborah Leal-Ramirez and I will be teaching Professional Communications, Theatre Arts, Technical Theatre and Theatre Production here at Calallen HS.  This is my 14th year teaching since I came into teaching as a second career.  After obtaining my degree, I worked in restaurant and retail management for 8 years before deciding to enter the classroom.  I began teaching in 2006 at West Oso ISD, moving on to CCISD in 2011.  I left teaching in 2016 to stay home with my newborn son.  Then in 2018, I worked as a Prevention Specialist for the Coastal Bend Wellness Foundation.  But the opportunity to teach here at Calallen came and I couldn't pass it up.  I am so excited to be here!

    Personally, I am married and have 3 babies, 3 stepbabies, and 3 stepgrandbabies.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, watching movies, traveling and relaxing at the beach.  I volunteer my time at my kids' schools, KEDT, the Alzheimers Association, Aurora Arts Theatre and the Rialto Theatre.  I am also a member of the Screen Actors Guild and work as a professional actor when I can.

    Feel free to reach me at (361)242-5626, ext. 7504 or at dleal-ramirez@calallen.org.  I am looking forward to having a great 2021-2022 school year!!
