Ortiz, Maria

Welcome to my 1st Grade Class Room


Balloon FestivalHello. My name is Ms. Ortiz.  I am very excited to be your child's 1st grade teacher this year.  This year is going by quickly.  I want to thank you parents for making sure that your child reads every night.  By working together, we can help your child succeed. 


I have been at Newman Elementary for 21 years, but have been teaching for 25 years.  I attended UTEP and graduated in 1992 with a major in Elementary Education.


If you have any questions, please call the school to set up an appointment.  My conference time is from 9:10-9:55Inside a hot air balloon
