Mrs. Patricia Espinoza
Welcome, Falcon Parents! My name is Patricia Espinoza and am proud to be your child's 2nd grade teacher. I have 11 years experience teaching various grade levels. I received my degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Education specializing in Early Childhood. I hold certifications in Gifted and Talented and English as a Second Language. From 2009 to 2013, I taught summer programs for students from Columbia, China, Mexico, and Taiwan at the University of the Incarnate Word. In 2017, I received the Superintendent's Award. In 2019, I was named Hidden Forest Teacher of the Year and in 2020 received our school's recognition of the Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching Award.
My husband and I just recently celebrated 28 years of marriage and have two sons, John Thomas and Zachary. Our love for travel started while my husband served in the Army and we lived in Germany. We have been blessed to have traveled to 9 countries, 25 states, and still counting!
I look forward to teaching 2nd and instilling the love of learning to your child. I believe together we can be successful in inspiring a life long learner!
