Welcome to Las Palmas Elementary!
My name is Maria Kreidel, and I am proud to be a Las Palmas Bobcat! I am the campus Acceletated Interventionist Teacher (AIT). In my job I primarily work with students in 3rd,4th, and 5th grade by providing services in the areas of Math and Reading.
I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I am a graduate of Brackenridge High School. I later attended and graduated from St.Mary's University where I majored in Marketing. I continued my studies at Our Lady of the Lake University where I earned my Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Management. I have over 17 years of business experience where I worked with Time Warner Cable and later Coca Cola Enterprises. I am working on my leadership certification. My goal is to become the principal of an elementary school.
After my career in business, I decided to go back to school and I became an Elementary Bilingual Teacher. I have been in education for the past 7 years with Edgewood ISD. I have taught Pre-K and 4th Grade Bilingual Classes at Las Palmas Elementary. I have also been an AIT at Las Palmas, and the Instructional Facilitator at Roosevelt Elementary. I am excited to be back at Las Palmas in the role of AIT.
My husband Richard and I enjoy going to the movies and spending time with our nephews and neices.
My favorite quote is by Yoda from Star Wars..... "To Try is to lie. Just do or do not."
