Mrs. Cathy Alonzo
Hello, I am so excited to be joining Chavez Elementary full-time this year! I got to know the campus as a long-term substitute in Pre-K last school year and just loved being there. I have taught Pre-K, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades over the years and now look forward to teaching 4th graders. I hold a Master's degree from Texas Woman's University and a Bachelor's from Texas State University and I am certified Pre-K through 6th grade, ESL, and Special Education. I am finishing up my national STEM certification as well.
Texas is where is where I was born and raised, but I have traveled extensively to over 20 countries. I lived and taught in Arkansas for the past three years. I recently married my high-school sweetheart, Juan. Between us we have three young adult sons: Jason, Caleb, and Brandon. We also have one rescued greyhound named Kiowa. He is a 45 mph couch potato. My husband and I enjoy working together on home improvements and gardening.
