Mrs. Andrea Diaz
Welcome! I am so excited to be a part of English Language Arts Department at Strike this year! This is my sixth year teaching in Little Elm and my first year at Strike.
I began my teaching career back in 2000 and spent several years teaching in McKinney and Fort Worth before moving to Little Elm ISD.
I graduated from Stephen F. Austin, with a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies. I have a specialty in Reading and a minor in Writing. I am excited to use my 20+ years of teaching experience and strong ELAR background to help with 6th, 7th and 8th grade Reading Lab this year.
I am married with a total of 6 kids. We have a son who lives in Austin and works for Google. We have two teenage daughters: a first year college student and a graduating senior. I have a son in eighth grade with me at Strike this year. Finally, two more daughters: both a third grader and a first grader at Prestwick.
When I have down time, I love to read pretty much anything with words and write my own poetry. I also love to bake and garden.
I am a cheery, creative, morning person and I love my job! I look forward to a fun and fulfilling year and am thrilled to work with students again this year!
