Meet The Teacher

Hello I'm Ms. Lopez and this is my 6th year teaching in Edgewood.  I started my career at Coronado-Escobar Elementary as a First Grade and then Kindergarten teacher. When our school closed Perales became my new home. I've taught Kindergarten, First grade, and now have the exciting pleasure of teaching Third Grade this year.  I'm looking forward to a wonderful year of new learning and opportunities! 
I graduated from St. Mary's University in 2004 with my BA in Political Science.  After several years working in the public field sector, I wanted a more giving and rewarding career so I went back to school to get my teaching certification and fulfill a childhood dream of becoming a teacher.  Here I am today very proud and excited to be a teacher in the Edgewood ISD. I just completed my Masters of Education Degree in Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio this May and hope to follow in my late mother's footsteps of becoming a Principal one day.  Seeing the lives she touched, people she inspired, and legacy she left behind in her colleagues, students, and parents of the Edgewood community was very touching. I would love the opportunity to make such an impact. 
That impact starts with what I do today as a teacher. My goal is to always be sincere, understanding, hard working, and passionate about promoting educational excellence and equity. I strive to learn and better myself everyday in order to be the best teacher for your child.
If ever there is a concern or question please do not hesitate to contact me. My conference time is below and I am also available before and after school by appointment.
