Hello! My name is Mrs. Flores and I am your child's first grade teacher. This is my second-year teaching first grade and my ninth-year teaching at Paschall Elementary. There is no job I would rather be doing and I thank you for sharing your child with me this year.
I was born in Monterey, California but moved to Germany when I was only 3 months old and spent the first five years of my life learning and exploring in another country, possibly explaining my love of traveling! I finally moved to San Antonio when the Army stationed our family at Fort Sam Houston. I am a proud product of Judson ISD. I attended Crestview, Kitty Hawk, and Judson. My college education began at San Antonio College and then I transferred to UTSA where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.
I’ve been married to Matthew Flores for almost 3 years and we are happily raising three fur babies. Our two dogs, Bailey and Laura, and our cat, Footloose, were all rescued, and we have never had a moment of regret! We love taking the pups on walks, listening to Footloose purr, and watching all three play!
I love to spend time with my family which includes 3 brothers, 2 sisters-in-laws, and 5 nieces and nephews. My family and I have Sunday dinner every Sunday and truly enjoy our time together, whether it is playing board games, competing in sports, or finding fun things to do around San Antonio! I also love to travel! Whenever my husband and I have time, we always plan to get away to places around the country like Washington, Colorado, Pennsylvania and New York. We even visit other countries, but sometimes we enjoy a "staycation" around Texas. I also love to shop, especially when I can find deals on things for my pets, home, and family. My real love is CrossFit where I get to lift heavy weights, run, bike, and just see how far I can push my limits!
I have a passion for teaching little minds. It brings me a lot of happiness to inspire children and watch them grow throughout the year. I love to see them learn to their fullest potential. I'm excited to be working with your child this year! Let's have a great year!
