Mrs. Wilke's Class

 My Name Is...

Candace Wilke

I am the yearbook sponsor and speech teacher at Bellville High School.  I was born in Bellville and graduated from Bellville High School in 1989.  After high school, I earned degrees in Organizational Communication and Secondary Education from Southwest Texas State University. I began my teaching career in Cy-Fair ISD, but could not wait to return home. In 1999, I started teaching at Bellville High School. I have a wonderful time each year helping students learn to express themselves through speech and pictures. I firmly believe that Communication is key!

My Conference Period is 7th period 2:30-3:25
