Mrs Mikelle Cortez

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. I received my undergraduate in Theatre Arts and English in 1995 from Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah. I taught in the Las Vegas area for nine years. During that time, I received my Masters of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix in 2000. In 2005, God answered our prayers of a better life and moved us to Mexico, Missouri. I taught in Fulton, Missouri for 10 years and one year at Father Tolton High School in Columbia, Missouri. In 2010, I received my Specialist of Education in Superintendency from William Woods University.

My husband, Robert, and I have three sons. Alexander is twenty-four years old and lives in Fulton, Missouri. Ryan will be twenty years old in August. He is currently in Oklahoma teaching Totus Tuus there and was just recently accepted as a seminarian. We are so excited and blessed to see God’s plan for him. He will begin seminary at Conception Abbey north of Kansas City this fall. Nicholas is seventeen and will be a senior at McAuley Catholic High School this fall.
