Degrees and Certifications:
Elizabeth De La Rosa
My name is Elizabeth De La Rosa. I am the Family Specialist at both Wilshire and Oak Grove Elementary School. I have been a Family Specialist with NEISD since 2011. I graduated from the University of Texas San Antonio with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Education. Prior to becoming a Family Specialist, I worked for Judson ISD as a Parent Educator and San Antonio ISD as a Gear Up Coach. In my experience I have worked with students and families from elementary level to college. It is such a privilege to be able to help families in all areas of life, to meet their goals, and to support the whole family unit.
The mission of the North East ISD Family Engagement program is to build family engagement between parents, the school, and the community by facilitating communication; assisting students and families who are experiencing barriers; and, empowering parents to fulfill their role as their child’s first teacher.

provide families with information from the district, community agencies, city and state institutions, and any other organizations that might benefit those with specific needs;
