Meet Mrs. Cruz

Walworth School Sunday Staff Spotlight 
Meet Mrs. Cruz ~ Second Grade Teacher  

How long have you worked in the district? What is your background in education?
This is my 6th year working full time at Walworth Elementary, but I did various long term and other substitute teaching jobs in the district before that. I have been working in the school setting in the summers in some capacity since I turned 16, but it has been about 10 years of full time teaching. 

Tell us about your family.
My husband and I have been married 10 years.  He is amazing at the grill and we love cooking, fishing, and doing family activities together.  I also have two young sons that both attend Walworth and make life so much fun and adventurous!

Growing up, what did you want to be?
I always wanted to be a teacher and a writer.  I love to express myself through writing and I love helping others to find out what they are passionate and starting that spark for lifelong learning.  

What is one of your favorite quotes?
My favorite quote is “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Do you have any pets?
We have two yellow labs named Suki and Piper that my sons love to run and play with in our big backyard.
