Alaniz, Maria
picture of Miss AlanizHello!  Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.  My name is Maria Alaniz and I have been teaching for 34 years.  I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education with a Minor in Bilingual Education from the University of Texas at El Paso.  I have taught 1st through 3rd grades. 
 
This is our first year implementing the Dual Language Program.  My class will be a two-teacher model.  I am happy to have Ms. Diaz as our English teacher and I will be the Spanish teacher.  Our students will be learning to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish.

I have an open door policy, you are welcomed to come and observe and/or help in you child's classroom.  Make sure you sign up in the office and get a visitor's pass.  My conference time is 
                                             1:45-2:30 or anytime after 3:30.  If you have any
                                             questions or concerns or would like to schedule a
                                            meeting, please contact the office at (915)
                                            236-3925.


                                            I believe all students can learn given the right
                                            opportunities which we will strive to provide
                                            combined with positive parent support.
