In preparation of growing enrollment, a new Quitman agriculture science teacher was hired for the next school year. Paulette Aguilar comes to Quitman after teaching agriculture courses at Gilmer ISD for six years.
Aguilar is a 2006 graduate of Mineola High School and 2011 graduate of Texas A&M-Commerce. She will teach plant science, agribusiness and leadership subjects.
She has taught several state-bound agriculture teams at Gilmer, including a state champion team in the farm business management category in 2018. She has coached students in career development and leadership development events.
She noted that she is competitive in contests and wants the students to be as successful as they can be.
She said QISD agriculture science teachers Brant Lee and Corey Hammond spoke highly of the program.
“I think, in general, we vibe so well. I’m really excited,” Aguilar said. “We all have the same goals.”
