Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. De La Garza
I am very excited to be a first grade teacher this year. I've previously taught first, second, and third grades. I started my career in Seguin ISD for 5 years. I then was hired at Sinclair Elementary and worked there for 19 years. I was here at Tradition last year and have been blessed to work with a great group of teachers. In my personal life, I have been married for 27 years and have 2 children: my son, 18, and my daughter, 14. My son will be attending college this year and my daughter is entering high school, here at East Central. I am also a Zumba instructor.
First grade is a foundational grade. Your child is expected to make the most growth out of any of the other grade levels. We will work towards having your child leave first grade knowing how to read, write, and be strong mathematicians and problem solvers. Let's make this year the best year!
