Dear Families,

  I am SO excited to be back in this beautiful building preparing for a great year here at Las Lomas Elementary, and I’m thrilled that your child is part of our pride!

  Although this will just be my third year as a lion, it’s year fourteen in the classroom for me! I’ve had a blast teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades at amazing NEISD schools, but there is something extra special about this place. I don’t think I’ve ever worked alongside such a caring group of educators, and the kids and families of Las Lomas are truly the best.

  I grew up here in San Antonio and graduated from Alamo Heights High School. I earned my degree from Texas State University in 2008. A few years later, I married my husband Tripp, and we have 2 kiddos. My daughter Layla is 8, and my son Webb is 6. They will start 3rd and 1st grades this year and I feel so lucky that they get to be here with me at LL. At home, we have a three-year-old Golden Retriever/Lab mix named Bo, and a very, very old little Maltipoo named Jagger. We enjoy traveling, spending time together in the great outdoors, and we love all things sports.

  As not only a Las Lomas teacher but also a Las Lomas parent, I know that open communication is essential, perhaps now more than ever. Rest assured that in these stressful, ever-changing times, we are committed to doing everything we can to keep ALL kiddos safe, healthy, happy, and LEARNING this year! Be sure to watch for Dr Maika’s Parent Message emails and check in with to stay up to date with the latest COVID information and protocols Also, always feel free to contact me or stop by if there’s ever anything you’d like to discuss or anything I can do for you or for your child- academically or otherwise- to help make this year a successful one! My door is always open. Well, it’s open for now…stay tuned!  


This year is going to be one for the books, y’all! Cheers!
