All About Ms. Bosworth

Welcome to CSA!  I am very excited to be working with you and your child this school year!  This is my second year at CSA, however prior to teaching here I taught 6th grade Math at Spring Woods MS for five years and in San Antonio.  After living in San Antonio most of my life and receiving my Bachelors Degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio, I decided to move to Houston to be closer to my two grown daughters and four grandchildren.  I also have a grown son who lives in Oklahoma City.  One thing you will notice very quickly about me is that I love math and science and believe they are an important part of our everyday life!  When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, watching movies, and cheering for my favorite teams, the New England Patriots and the Texas A&M Aggies!
