Hello students and parents. I'm Ms. Melissa Cruz and I've been teaching in Edgewood for 7 years and excited to begin my 8th year at the new 6th Grade Academy. I absolutely LOVE reading and writing and I also love to teach it. I have two sons; my youngest beginning high school this year. I'm originally from Florida but the U.S. Air Force brought me to San Antonio several times so I decided to retire here and call it home. When I'm not working, I love to watch movies, read novels, go to the gym, go to the coast and spend time with my boys. I have a BS in Human Resource Management. I"m graduating in December 2014 with my masters degree in Reading Literacy from UTSA. I have two dogs, Lola and Jade and a crazy cat named Azura. I'm looking forward to a great year at a new campus.
