    Jennifer Delmark -- I believe in hands-on real world learning that students will be able to use every day. This will be my 7th year teaching 5th grade. I was born in Austin and went to Westwood HS in north Austin. I met my husband in 7th grade. He was the “boy next door.” We have been married for 22 years. My older son was on the Cross Country/Track team at LTHS and is now in college.  My younger son is going into 9th at LTHS and loves football, skateboarding, and any sport.

    Brittney Ellis –  I graduated from Angelo State University with my teaching degree in 2004. I met my husband, got married, and had 3 kiddos in San Angelo. We moved to Austin 5 years ago and we’ve been enjoying the Hill Country since then. I have been subbing at WCH and running a cookie business to fill my time. I am so happy to be back in my own classroom. This is my first year teaching 5th grade.  

    Hannah Embry -- I am Hannah Embry, and this is my 3rd year as a 5th grade teacher at WCHE.  I have received my undergraduate and master's degrees from Texas A&M, both in the Education and Human Development field. In our free time, my husband and I love to hike, backpack, and explore the outdoors with our dog, Luna. Our cat, Kingsley, prefers to stay home.

    Lauren Ingber -- I graduated from Lake Travis High School in 2003 (Go, Cavs!)  and then went to Texas State University (Eat'em up!) to study vocal music and biology.  I sang with the San Antonio Opera for a season after graduating from college.  I started my teaching career as a paraprofessional in life skills at Hudson Bend Middle School for 2.5 years.  Then I earned my teaching certification to work as a special education teacher and have worked as a 6th grade resource math teacher at Hudson Bend Middle School since then.  I am excited to start my lucky year number 14 with LTISD at West Cypress Hills!

    Hannah Minyard -- I graduated from Appalachian State University (roll 'neers!) located in the beautiful mountains of Boone, North Carolina! This is my first year teaching, and I'm so excited to be a part of the West Cypress Family!  My goal is to create a classroom of empathetic learners who are ready to contribute to their community! Some of my favorite things include hiking, rock climbing, and running!  If I'm not at school, I'm definitely outside somewhere! Go Tigers!
