Mrs. Patricia Espinoza
Welcome, Falcon Parents! My name is Patricia Espinoza and am proud to be your child's kindergarten teacher. I have over 13 years of experience teaching various grade levels. I received my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Education specializing in Early Childhood from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I hold two certifications: Gifted and Talented and the supplemental certification for teaching students who are English Language Learners. In 2017, I received the NEISD 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 30 years of marriage and have two wonderful sons. Our love for travel started while my husband was stationed in Germany while serving in the United States Army. We have been blessed to have traveled to 10 countries, 31 states, and still counting!
I look forward to teaching kindergarten and instilling the love of learning in your child. I believe together we can be successful in inspiring a life-long learner!
