   "Every child is a story yet to be told." 


      Hello everyone!  My name is Deanna Wiatrek and I am the counselor at Karnes City Junior High.  After graduating from Karnes City High School, I moved to San Marcos and attended Southwest Texas State University, now known as Texas State University. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Minor Degree in Special Education.

     I have taught as a special education teacher at the elementary level and moved to junior high after two years.  After leaving special education, I continued to stay at the junior high level where I taught 7th and 8th Grade Science.  After teaching for several years, I earned my Master of Education Degree in School Counseling from Lamar University, and have been a counselor for 7 years.  In all, I have had twenty-four years in education and junior high is my favorite place to be.

     In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I also enjoy salt water fishing, running, shopping, and spending time at our home away from home in Rockport.
