My name is Mrs. Cruz and I am a 3rd grade teacher. I love, love, love doing what I do and I have been very BLESSED to be able to do so. When people ask me what I do, I simply reply, "I do what I love and I love what I do." I get excited each year knowing I am going to meet new students and it's a wonderful feeling knowing you will make a positive impact in their lives.
Family is EVERYTHING to me! I am BLESSED to have such an outgoing, outspoken, and at times a little odd (but in a good way, LOL!) family. I have been married for 16 years and I have two children, Korbin (15) and Kylee (6). We have a mischievous cat named Lex who likes to eat every 30 minutes. We also had a little hermit crab who spent 9 great years with us.
I am a graduate of San Benito CISD. I attended what was formerly known as the University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB) currently now known as UTRGV. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Education in 2013. I also have a background in nursing which has also always been a passion of mine. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree.
