Mrs. Torres' 4th Grade Class
Hello! I am so excited to be a part of the Roan Forest Family with the fourth-grade team!
I grew up in the small town of Castroville, TX - just a few miles west of San Antonio. After high school, I attended the University of North Texas and studied interdisciplinary studies. I student taught in a fifth-grade math class as well as a first-grade self-contained class. After graduating with my Bachelor's in 2016, I moved to Princeton, TX to teach at Smith Elementary School. In my first year of teaching, I taught fourth-grade science and social studies. I learned so much and had a great team! However, third-grade math was calling my name and so the following year I moved down to the third-grade hall. Even though I had such a wonderful experience at Smith, it was time for me to move back home to San Antonio. After a few months of subbing in NEISD, I was picked up as a fifth-grade teacher at Ridgeview Elementary School. Though my time at Ridgeview was great, Roan Forest called for an opportunity I couldn't refuse!
This will be my fourth year teaching at Roan Forest and I am so excited to be moving up to fourth grade with my kiddos from last year! Even though I won't have all my same students, I'm lucky to have any of them in my class again. Being a Trailblazer has been such a wonderful experience!
As my students know from this past year, I got married over the summer! My name is now Mrs. Torres, but I'll always answer to Ms. Bailey.
This year is going to be amazing! Teaching fourth-grade holds a special place in my heart and I am excited to be part of such an amazing team!
