Miss Anna Piña
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
I am thrilled to be working with you in the 2023-2024 school year at Las Lomas Elementary School! Second Grade is such a fantastic and exciting time. You will see so much growth as young leaders that will take you beyond the classroom and into the real world. You will learn how to become problem solvers ready go forth and serve your community! As your teacher, I will serve as your guide ready to empower you every step of the way!
I was born and raised in San Antonio having also lived in Houston and Spain. I graduated from St. Mary's University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree and hold certification in Early Childhood through 6th grade, English as a Second Language, and Theatre Education EC-12. This is my 11th year with NEISD. In addition to Second Grade, I have also taught Kinder, First, and Fifth. When I am not in the classroom, I am working as a dance instructor at Cynergy Dance Company. I am also entertaining at city-wide events as a Mexican folkloric dancer, Spanish flamenco dancer, and a charactor performer. I love hanging out with my cats Mr. Santikos and Serj Tankitten! I continue to be an active community member by sharing these passions of dancing, learning, and teaching with others.
