Mrs. Cynthia Contreras

I am so happy to be teaching 2nd grade.  I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas.  My teaching career started 13 years ago in Phoenix Arizona where I taught for 11 years. I then moved to Lakewood, CO. and taught 2nd grade for a year.   After moving to San Antonio 2016, I was lucky enough to secure a position in 2nd grade at East Terrell Hills.  This will be my 13th year teaching.  

I am married to a wonderful man, Dennis, who has given my family the opportunity to live in different states and make many friends.  We have two children.  Our son Jake, who is 25 and just recently graduated from Arizona State University and our 12 year daughter Taylor, who attends Tex Hill.

I am passionate about helping students reach their highest potential.  As well, as becoming upstanding, productive citizens.

Looking forward to another wonderful school year.
