Hello students and parents. I'm Ms. Melissa Cruz and I've been teaching in Edgewood since 2007. I'm super excited about starting my 9th year at Roosevelt Elementary as a 5th grade ELAR and Social Studies teacher. I absolutely LOVE reading and writing and I also love to teach it. I have two sons; my youngest is a sophmore in 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 masters degree in Reading Literacy from UTSA. I have two fur babies, Jade and Gigi. I'm looking forward to a great year at a new campus.
