Hello! My name is Vindhya Devalla. I have been working for 4 years in Lovejoy ISD and this is my 4th year at WSMS. Before coming to WSMS, I worked at Lovejoy High School. I started my career in the business world with a degree from UT Arlington in Information systems and have a Bachelor’s degree in Physics and Mathematics from Goa University in India. My passion for learning and teaching took over and I went back and earned my certification in Math (K-12) and in Special Education. Then I joined the Lovejoy family and have been loving it ever since.
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband for 27 years, and I am blessed with two boys. My older son just graduated from UT Dallas with a major in Finance and Statistics. He now works in Austin. My younger son, Abhinav graduated from Lovejoy High School in 2017 and is going to UT Austin and is working on earning a degree in mechanical engineering. After living in Plano for over 20 years, we moved to Lucas in 2014 and we love it here. I love to cook and do gardening during my spare time. We had a new addition this summer and got our new puppy "Mowgli". He is a labradoodle and is 12 weeks old now. We love him and he is my stress reliever.
I believe Math skills are essential to everyone. We use Math skills in almost everything that we do in our day to day life – whether it is calculating measurements for recipe; planning a budget; comparing different sales; doing taxes; or calculating your calories; not to mention starting your own business or work as an engineer etc. There is Math everywhere! I want to instill the same passion for Math in my students and I want them to love Math, not fear it.
I look forward to a fantastic year working with your students. Thank you for sharing them with me.
