My Place in The Woodlands

At My Place in The Woodlands, we believe that the education model must adapt to our new circumstances. The need of a safe, healthy and stable environment is now a priority, as much as academic excellence is.


Learning at My Place in The Woodlands allows your child to become the center of the education process, adapting to your child’s uniqueness.


We honor the need for families to experience new adventures spending time together in the afternoons.  That is why our No Homework Policy is so important.


We actively encourage extra-curricular activities for families to bond together and for our students to learn about the world by choosing how they expand their own interests.

Growing up in a family of lawyers and teachers, Cecilia has always loved not only to learn but also to share the joy of learning.  Cecilia is a corporate lawyer and practiced law for 25 years. She is a dedicated mother of three girls and a reading passionate, thus creating our “Readers are Leaders” campaign.  She is a firm believer, as Harry S.

Cecilia went from being a Law School teacher to being our principal since My Place in The Woodlands was founded.


Cecilia’s personality has shown that she is very outgoing and nurturing, while also maintaining our high academic standings, and providing an environment for personalized teaching. Everyone lovingly calls her "Miss Ceci". She is very enthusiastic of all our extra-curricular activities, specially our “Crazy Hair Day”.  Most of all, she enjoys visiting all classrooms almost every day, to celebrate birthdays and do Science experiments.  Miss Ceci is very well known for her fun costumes.
