My name is Roxanne Alvarez and I am the Family Specialist at Redland Oaks and Tuscany Heights Elementary. I am a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary studies. Prior to becoming a Family Specialist with NEISD, I served as an After School Program Site Coordinator for six years. I believe in the positive correlation between parent involvement and student achievement, and I am determined to empower the families of our community by providing resources and educational workshops. I am passionate about the work that I do, and I am thrilled to serve as your Family Specialist. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing you in our upcoming family sessions, and to serving the families of Redland Oaks and Tuscany Heights Elementary.
