Ms. Cecilia Herrera

Ms. Herrera is beyond thrilled to serve as the Science Department Head and the UIL Science Coach at PHS! Last year she was nominated PHS teacher of the year by her staff members. This will be her sixth year at Porter High School and her eight year working in New Caney ISD.

She will be teaching Biology and Environmental Systems which is a brand new course offered to students this year. Other school districts that she has previously worked for include Houston ISD & Aldine ISD. She obtained her teaching and Masters' degree from the University of St. Thomas in Houston.

Prior to becoming an educator, she worked as a Dental Assistant and Retail Supervisor. Her goal this year is to prepare and equip students with the proper tools and skills for them to smoothly transition into college and the workforce.
