Ms. Teresa Perusquia

Welcome to a new school year and to our Beautiful still very Brand New School!  I hope you had an enjoyable summer and are ready for the first day of of school at Escondido Elementary!  I am very excited to meet you and I know we will have an awesome year learning about all kinds of new and exciting things.  I am thrilled to be working with your son/daughter this school year as Special Education teacher.

Here’s a little about myself:

I am a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies EC-4.  I hold a graduate degree in Administration with Concordia University, and an Associates in Business Management and Accounting from St Phillips College.  I attend various workshops regularly through the district and other educational agencies in order to keep abreast of all the newest teaching techniques and ideas to meet the needs of all my students learning abilities.  Every summer I also renew my Talented and Gifted Certification.  I am also SPED and ESL Certified. 

I graduated from Judson High School with the class of 95' and was a Galaxie Dance Team Member.  I am a product of Judson ISD and am very proud to be teaching for the district that taught me.  

I am blessed with two amazing children who also attended Judson ISD schools.  My son Manuel IV is 22 and graduated from Wagner High School in 2015 and my daughter Marisa is 19 and graduated from Judson High School June 2018.  I am proud to say that both of my kiddos are now college students and attend San Antonio College and Northeast Lakeview College.  I also have a stepson and daughter in law who made me a Yaya this summer!  A bouncing baby boy!  Which I am super excited about.

We now have 6 fur babies living with us.  Our cats Shadow, Sunny, Nala and our newest little baby Dallas and our dogs Riley and Coco.  I love my fur babies like children!  When I am not preparing for lessons I am relaxing with my family and pets or taking weekend trips to the coast.  I love the beach, the sound of ocean waves and digging my toes in the sand.  I am now proud to say I have a hobby!!  I got a Cricut last Christmas and have been "crafting" away..

Some of my favorites are:

Favorite color: Purple

Food: Pizza

Snack: Chocolate

Drink: Dr. Pepper

When I have time I watch Basketball the SPURS of course, or Football Go Cowboys! 

I am so excited to be a part of your child’s education and can’t wait to get to know each and everyone of them.  Please feel free to contact me via email or by phone and please feel free to stop by check in and see what we are up to in the classroom.  But please remember per district/school policy you must have a cleared criminal check on file in order to visit in our room!  It is my hope that we have an exciting, rewarding and enjoyable time this school year!
