  Hello my name is Maricruz Valdez;
  I am very excited to be the counselor
  here at Las Palmas Elementary. Work
  that began
as a job envolved into a career,
  and is now something I see as a vocation!        
 
I graduated from Angelo State University 
 with a Bachelor's Degree in Science
 in 2004, 
and a Master’s Degree in Guidance and
C
ounseling in 2010.  
This is my 10
th year working in the field of education.
I've been blessed with the opportunity to teach in high school
for 3 years, middle school for 2 years, and elementary for
3 years.
Moreover; I have 2 beautiful kids and I enjoy reading
and traveling! My favorite quote is… 
 
“I've failed over and over and over again in my life and
that is why I succeed. ~ Michael Jordan
