Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my class! My name is JoAnna Alvarez and I graduated from Sam Houston University- Go Bearkats! I knew at a very young age that I wanted to to be a teacher, and I never changed my mind! I met my husband at Sam Houston and we have been happily married for 29 years- 30 this April. I have a 27 year old son who graduated from Ok State University- Go Pokes! We also have two dogs, Dickens and Cowboy; and a hedgehog named Moonpie.
I have been teaching for 31 years, 18 of them in kindergarten. Kindergarten is my passion- it is a year of amazing growth and accomplishments! I have been at Cullins for 20 years and I absolutely love this school and the families that attend it. It is my home away from home and there is no where that I would rather be.
I am always here if you need to schedule a time to meet with me. There will be afternoons that I have meetings, but I am always willing to meet with you in the evening. If you have a question or concern, please contact me, and let's find a time to meet. I will schedule several conferences over the year, and look forward to sharing wonderful things about your child. We are a team working together to make this a successful year for your little one.
