My favorite thing about teaching is watching my students grow in love with learning.  From the time I get to school until I leave for the day, I am able to share in their experiences.  I observe them sharing and using what they’ve learned during the school day in their daily lives.  Sometimes they are aware they are doing it, and sometimes they are not.  Either way, watching them grow in love with learning fills my heart to overflowing.

Welcome to Montague Village Elementary School! I am thrilled to have been chosen to be the principal of this very successful school. I have been in education for 22 years and feel a very special connection to military families.  My family and I traveled the world with our Soldier. My three boys and I are very proud that we were able to support our military service member. We have since retired here in the Fort Hood, Texas area.


I am excited to be able to help educate the children of our Soldiers. At Montague Village Elementary, we strive to ensure a quality education for each child. This involves the collaboration of the community, parents and teachers to help each child succeed.  Our teachers and staff are some of the most dedicated professionals I have ever worked with, and we consider it a privilege to help your children achieve their goals. We are educating students for jobs that do not even exist at this time. Therefore, it is important that students are taught to think and to problem solve so that they can be successful in the 21st century.


We are growing students not only in academics, but also in leadership. Our world needs leaders who are educated, passionate and who have strength of character.  Our hope at Montague Village Elementary is that when a child leaves our school, they will not only be educated in the curriculum, but also have the wisdom to help others in the world around them. We look forward to helping your child reach his/her potential at Montague Village Elementary School.

Welcome to Montague Village Elementary School! I am Mrs. Apodaca and I am one of the two assistant principals here at Montague Village. I LOVE our school, the teachers, students and families. Before becoming an assistant principal, I served Killeen ISD as an instructional specialist and teacher.  My husband and I have three children and two grandchildren.


Montague Village Elementary is a special place. Students work hard and teachers have high expectations for your children. We are helping create future leaders and difference-makers! As an added bonus, we have the pleasure of caring for the precious children of our nation’s heroes. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your child’s life journey. We promise to create great memories for your children. They will learn more than you expect them to learn and leave our school with a love a learning.


Please call me if you have questions or if I can help you in any way.  254-336-2230
