In the aftermath of Hurricane Beryl across our area, Lamar CISD is canceling all summer school classes, programs, extracurricular activities, and practices scheduled for Wednesday, July 10 and Thursday, July 11. All locations will remain closed to students and staff on Wednesday, July 10, and Thursday, July 11. This closure will allow our maintenance teams to work efficiently and without interruptions, ensuring our schools are safe. We will welcome all staff and students on Monday, July 15.

Math/Science Facilitator

Hi there!

I am Antonio Marchena. I was born and raised in beautiful Spain, where I got my teaching degree. My first teaching position was in Middle and High school in a small private school on an island in the Mediterranean. In 2007 I was hired to teach in Texas, more specifically in HISD. During Hurricane Ike I found the love of my life, my wife Katie, and the Lone Star State has become my home ever since. I have taught in Elementary, Middle and High School and I am now blessed to be the Math and Science Facilitator at Smith Elementary. I truly believe that learning comes from discovery and wonder, and that all students can learn at high levels if you provide them with a positive and nurturing environment like the one we have here at Smith.

 I am a proud foster dad and I am very happy to call myself a Smith Superstar!

If you need my assistance please feel free to reach me at [email protected].
