Meet Mr. Stansell

My name is Charles T. Stansell. God blessed me by placing me here in 2005. I am originally from San Diego, Texas (GO VAQUEROS!). Although I have taught primarily in the 5th grade here, I have also taught K3 thru 5th grade. I have also taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade for the San Diego Independent School District in San Diego, Texas in Special Education (Language Arts). I also worked for the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department in corrections. One unique thing about me, is that I had the opportunity to work in the 2004 film, The Alamo. Since then, I have enjoyed participating in annual Texas Living History events such as The Battle of Bejar/Siege of the Alamo, and The Battle/Massacre at Goliad. My mission here at Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic School is to prepare my 5th graders for the 6th grade.  


I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
I am CPR certified.

My favorite quote is what my grandfather told me long ago. He said to me, "The decisions you make NOW, are the ones that are going to count later on in life". I pass this on to my students every year at our 5th grade graduation Mass/Ceremony.
