Ms. Kandice Koch

Hello Las Lomas Families! 🦁❤️

My name is Kandice Koch and this year I have the privilege of being your child's 5th grade teacher this school year. This is my 14th year in education and my first year to join the Las Lomas team. I was previously at Fox Run in NEISD for almost 10 years. During my teaching experience, I have taught Kinder, 1st, 4th, 5th, and I was also a Reading Instructional Coach. I love to be involved as much as possible with my students, inside and outside of their education. Over the years, I have been a sponsor for Cheer Club, Book Club, Drama Club, Student Council, a Student 2 Student program to help support military families. These clubs have been a blast and I am hoping to get Student Council started for our students this year at Las Lomas.

I recently completed my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership in May of 2022 at The University of Texas San Antonio, and I am back at UTSA this year for my Master's in Technology Instruction and Design. Go Roadrunners! When I am not diving into all things related to reading, writing, and technology, I spend most of my time with my family, friends, and my fur child, Scooter. I am very fortunate to have a lot of my family right here in San Antonio! 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or comments that you may have throughout the school year. Building relationships is very important to me and my door is always open. I believe communication between teachers, parents, and students is one of the biggest keys to success. It is my passion to learn all about your children, to help them grow as a person and also as leaders. I look forward to an exciting year making memories and helping your children reach their full personal potential. 😊
