Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Teresa Hackett

Greetings! I am so excited to be your child’s fourth grade teacher!

This is my third year at Northwood, and it will be my 13th year as an elementary teacher in San Antonio. 

I grew up in El Paso where I enjoyed reading, drawing and painting, as well as writing for my high school newspaper. I went to the University of Texas at Austin where I met and married my husband. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Learning with a specialization in English.

When I graduated from college, my husband and I moved to San Antonio, and I taught 4th and 5th grade at J.T. Brackenridge in SAISD for six years. I then transferred to NEISD where I taught 5th grade at Montgomery Elementary for four years, and I was voted Teacher of the Year two years in a row.

I took a teaching sabbatical when we decided to start a family, and for seven years I had the privilege of staying at home with our two children, now ages nine and five. We love going to parks and the zoo together, as well as spending time with our rescue dog, Dogtor Watson. 

I regularly use the ClassDojo app to communicate with parents. Here is a link to connect with me on ClassDojo:

As a parent, I know first-hand how important it is to have a caring teacher who will create a strong relationship with your child. I will love working closely with you to help your child have the best year possible!
