My name is Maria Cruz, I'm a 7th & 8th grade Bilingual Aide at Central Media Arts Academy. I grew up in Galveston TX, I immigrated from Veracruz,Mexico when I was 10 years old. I graduated from Ball High School in 2013. I started Galveston College for a month, but I was not able to finish due to a family emergency at that time.I went ahead and started to work as a Teacher Aide at Hope Academy for 3 years. Then I got the opportunity to move to another school and I chose Central Media Arts Academy last year. This is my 2nd year here with the Newcomer Bilingual kids. I love to spend most of the time with my children and family. I enjoy being here with my students because I can reflect myselfwith them, back when I first came here I was one of the English as a Second Language Students and I had the same help as they do and it took me a lot to overcome and work towards my dream and now I am here working with them and I would like to graduate as a Bilingual TEACHER soon.
