Meet Ms. Jules Brooks

E-mail: brooksje1@sfasu.edu

My name is Jules Brooks, and I love being a part of the SFA Charter School community! I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from SFA in December 2011 and immediately began my teaching career. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grade. I love being a part of the beginning years of a child's school career.

I love seeing children grow as learners and develop a love of learning. I believe it's my calling to be a teacher so I can impact the future in a positive way. I look forward to working with you and your child.

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and majored in marketing. I began my second career of teaching in 2015 with 3-year-olds. I gained my EC-6 alternative certification in 2016, and I taught prekindergarten at Nacogdoches ISD for two years. This will be my third year in kindergarten at the SFA Charter School. I have two daughters, Bridget, who is an SFA Charter School student, and Kellen, an SFA Charter School graduate.

I worked with prekindergarten and kindergarten students as a teacher assistant at Nacogdoches ISD for 15 years. I joined the SFA Charter School family in August 2016. Working in kindergarten is a gratifying experience, and the academic and personal growth the students acquire throughout the year is amazing. I am looking forward to another successful year.
