Mrs. Elsa Cruz

I grew up in Escobares, Texas.  I attended Roma I.S.D. and graduated from high school in 1999.  I went to college at The University of Texas Pan American where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (EC-4 Bilingual Generalist).  I began my teaching career at Rio Grande City C.I.S.D. as a 1st grade teacher in 2005. In 2006, I started working at R.T. Barrera Elementary as a 4th grade teacher.  I've been here since then, and I love it!  My goal is for all my students to be successful learners.
