- This year Mr. Deeds Buys Houses “adopted” teacher is Loretta Moutra, she is a blessing and a shining light. Here is what she said in her Bio to us:
“My name is Loretta Moutra and I am a special education teacher at the amazing Burton Elementary in Fort Bend ISD. I currently support Kindergarten, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade and Life Skills students. My love for passion for education began at a very early age. My mother, grandmother, most of my aunts were all educators. In 1985, my parents opened a private school, The Bearrington School that operated until 2012. After college, I began teaching Kindergarten thru 5th grade. After we closed the school, I became certified in special education. My philosophy is that ALL children are EXCEPTIONAL learners. Every child can learn, it is our job to found out their ‘how’. I truly love working with children. I especially love working with children with special needs or challenging behaviors. Although I am incredibly passionate about my career, my most favorite job is mom. I have two girls ages 14 and 8. My kids are my entire heart and I love them so very much. Between my courageous kids at school my wonderful children at home, I am inspired daily to learn more, love more and spread light into the world.”
