Welcome to our Dual Language Kindergarten Class!
My name is Gizel Barraza. I was born in El Paso, TX and was raised in San Elizario, a small town in El Paso. I lived there all my life, up until last year. I graduated from San Elizario High School in 2010. After I graduated, I attended The University of Texas at El Paso and received my Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am a Bilingual Generalist Early Childhood- 6th. I have a spunky son who makes parenting fun and interesting.
I am so grateful to have been welcomed at Dr. Green and it has been a pleasure working and getting to know all of the faculty and staff. It truly feels like a family. This is my second year teaching, and I have loved every second of it! It has been a great experience working with Kindergarten. Kindergarten will allow you to grow, not only as a teacher, but as a person. Their eagerness to learn is truly contagious. I believe that,
"A teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image." -Author Unknown
I am excited to be a part of your child's life and welcome them in this Kindergarten journey!
