Welcome to Walzem Elementary School! My name is Diana Conrad. This will be my twenty - fifth year teaching. I taught kinder for my first six years. Then I taught a K-1 multi-age classroom for one year. It was a great learning experience which I continue to enjoy immensely. After the multi-age experience, I had the privilege of teaching First grade Bilingual for sixteen years. This coming school year will be my third year teaching second grade. I look forward to the new challenges with my new class of scholars and am excited about the new experiences to come.
I grew up in San Juan, Texas - a small, friendly town along the Rio Grande. The cultural and economic conditions of my upbringing make me sensitive to children that come from similar environments. The lesson that I learned is that we can succeed regardless of personal and economic challenges. I want my students to know that my motivation as a teacher is to provide a level of academic opportunity and success that will position them to succeed.
I earned degrees in Psychology and Education at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg, Texas. I have been married for 20 years and moved to San Antonio shortly after my wedding. My husband and I love going out to eat to try new cuisines and spending quality time at home with family. I am blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to be a teacher at Walzem. I know the 2020-2021 school year will be filled with joy and lots of learning.
Go Walzem Colts!
