Eileen Padilla

Hometown: Garland, Texas
University: University of North Texas at Dallas
Teaching Interest: Bilingual Education

Eileen first started working with children through her local church. Through that work, she felt called to the teaching profession. In high school, she took a future teacher internship which further solidified her desire to be an educator. 

Eileen wants to work with students whose native language is not English. She wants these students to feel welcome in her classroom and help them develop a love for learning. Eileen hopes to plant a seed in the mind of each of her students that they can grow into the person they want to be.

Eileen wants to thank everyone who helped guide her on her educational journey and her family and friends for their love and support.
