Welcome to Mrs. Cortez's Fabulous Firsties!
I am so excited to be a part of the Frenship Family! I love teaching young children to love learning while having fun!
I have taught Kindergarten for years and have moved up to 1st grade. I have a Communications degree from Eastern New Mexico University and actually started out my career as a news reporter before venturing into Education. I'm so glad I was called to teaching!
I am married to a teacher and coach and we have two beautiful children, Ava and Joseph. Ava attends Crestview as well. And Joseph is just down the street at his daycare. Any spare time we get, we spend as a family watching games, hanging out with our extended family and friends. I also love to run! I have ran two full marathons and 17 half marathons.
We are excited to be back in the Lubbock area as we previously lived in the DFW area for 8 years! I am so excited to have your child in my class and promise to make learning fun, have a kind heart, give lots of hugs and laugh and dance daily with our kids.
