Mrs. Patricia Espinoza
Welcome Falcon Parents! My name is Patricia Espinoza and am proud to be your child's Kindergarten teacher. This will be my 9th year teaching with 6 years in fourth grade, 1 year in fifth grade, and 1 year in Kindergarten. I received my degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Education speacializing in Early Childhood. I am GT and ESL certified and have taught students from Columbia, China, Mexico, and Taiwan at the University of the Incarnate Word. In 2017, I was nominated for the prestigious Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching Award and received the Superintendent's Award while at Hardy Oak Elementary.
My husband and I just recently celebrated 26 years of marriage and have two sons. Our eldest son graduated from UTSA with a degree in History and our youngest is still pursuing his degree. Our love for travel started while my husband was in the Army, and we lived in Germany. We have been blessed to have traveled to 9 countries, 23 states, and still counting!
I look forward to teaching Kinder and instilling the love of learning to your precious child. I believe together we can be successful in inspiring a life long learner!
