Welcome to third grade at Zavala Elementary! I am excited to begin a new school year and look forward to being your child’s teacher. Third grade is a year full of change and transition, but also of tremendous learning and maturity. I believe that students learn more from their actual experiences, so I will provide my students with as many hands-on activities and experiments throughout the year as possible.
I attended the University of Texas at El Paso where I earned my Bachelor's and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my 7th year teaching, but am especially excited to start my first year at Zavala. I have had the privilege of teaching second, third and fourth grade and every single year has been a wonderful learning experience.
Parents you are your child's first teacher, with your help and support we can accomplish a successful year in third grade. It is very important to have excellent communication between home and school. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone (915)236-0550, email or to schedule a conference.
