Ms. Sommerfeld is beginning her 23rd year in education. She is a Canyon native and a graduate of Canyon High School. Upon graduating high school, she went to West Texas A&M University and got her BS in Interdisciplinary Studies. Her first teaching job after college was in Plainview, TX. After teaching 3rd grade there for three years, she was excepted to graduate school at the University of Texas in Austin. While getting her degree, she taught 3rd grade in Pflugerville, TX for three years. Upon graduating with her masters in Educational Psychology, she taught one more year, and then got a job in Georgetown ISD as a school counselor. After one year in GISD, she returned to her former campus in Pflugerville ISD where she served as the school counselor until the end of school in May 2019. She now returns to the panhandle as the full-time counselor at Hillside elementary to begin her 15th year as a school counselor.

In her free time, Ms. Sommerfeld likes to read, play with her dogs, knit, spend time with friends and family, exercise, and watch Longhorn football (Hook ‘Em).

She couldn’t be happier to be a Hillside Cub and looks forward to a great year working with Hillside students, staff, and parents for the 2019 – 2020 school year.
