Lisa R. Alanis

This is my twelfth year at Theodore Roosevelt High School! I teach the AP Spanish Language and Culture and also the Spanish II Pre AP course.  I love my job and I work hard for my students!
I was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa.   I graduated with a B.A. in Spanish from Cornell College in 1984 and a M.A. in Spanish/EnglishTranslation and Interpretation from the University of Northern Iowa in 1987.  I lived in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico (South of Mexico City) for ten years before moving to San Antonio, Texas. I love South Texas and its diversity and am proud to call San Antonio my home.  
I am a single mother of three children, two of which are graduated Longhorns! My baby is 19 years old.  All three of my children are bilingual and bicultural.
I love to read, swim ,exercise, travel and enjoy really good food! If I am not working, I am spending time with family and friends.
In 2016 I completed coursework through Angelo State University to obtain Principal Certification in Texas and plan to pursue a career in Administration in the near future.
