My favorite thing about teaching is witnessing my students succeed. I enjoy watching them become problem solvers and self-driven leaders. I admire their willingness and ability to learn the English language while maintaining their native language. Most of all, I appreciate the love and respect I receive from my students, parents, and co-workers on a daily basis.

Killeen ISD Education Foundation hosted the 2016 Starmakers Academic Recognition banquet on May 16, which celebrated the academic achievement of the top 40 graduates of Killeen ISD.  Mrs. Montoya-Lemons was choosen as a distinguished teacher from one of these students.  This is what her previous student had to say, "Mrs. Montoya-Lemons taught me to work hard and challenge myself because she believed in me.  She showed me a potential that I never saw in myself.  Mrs. Montoya-Lemons started me on the path that led me to where I am today.  Thank you Mrs. Montoya-Lemons!"  Please join the Pershing Park family in recognizing Mrs. Montoya-Lemons for this great honor.

The Little Pumas Club is currently enrolling new members.
The Little Pumas Club is an early literacy program, open for children of ages 3 to 4, not yet enrolled in school. 
Our main purpose is to teach children basic social and academic skills and have them acclimated to a school environment prior their first enrollment. 
This is a premier opportunity to bring your children to school and get them excited about learning while interacting with other kids. 
Join us and give your child a JUMP START at exploring learning! 
A parent must be present at every meeting and participate along with the child.
