Pitts Foote Cosmetology Department

  I am Zorina Pitts Foote, the Cosmetology Instructor at the Buinger Career Technical Education Academy. I am a product of the H.E.B. I.S.D.  I graduated from Trinity High School, member of Trojan Alumni and a graduate from our own H.E.B. Cosmetology class. It has been my dream to teach in the school I came from. The HEB Cosmetology class began in 1971, with my first teacher, Ms. Brewer. My second year was the beginning for second teacher, Mrs. McLemore. I began substitute teaching for the third teacher in this classroom, Mrs. Flower.  Now I am the fourth Cosmetology Instructor to ever teach in HEB ISD. I love that I have been apart of every instructor career in my class. With the help of others, I plan to be here a long time giving back to the commuinity, I grew up in!

 Absent's &/or Tardie's will put your student  in danger of not finishing the program or to be removed from class.

Here is how to get into the Cosmetology Program....Fill out the application from your councelor or here on this site, send it to Mrs. Foote.  Get 2 teacher referances (they can email them to her or you can bring them to her), make a small portfolio up of things you might have done to show her some of your examples, fantasy or natural make up, hair, nails etc.... then you will do a interview process. Students should have good grades, attendance, a great attitude, be able to commit for 2 years to the Cosmetology program. This class is 3 hours for the junior year and 2 hours for your senior year. You must be able to clock in for 1000 hours during those 2 years and be able to do extra time for late night, hair shows, & voluntering. You will get you real Texas Cosmetology operator license in this class. The fees next year are $ 800.00 for Juniors and $ 500.00 for Seniors. This all goes to the student for their supplies, books & testing. We can give you more details if needed. This licence would cost you around $ 25,000.000 in the trade school after graduation.
