Oritz, Erica

Mrs. Ortiz

Dear Parents,
      My name is Erica Ortiz and I am so excited about this school year.  I am a proud graduate of UT-Pan American. I graduated in 2005 with a Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, minoring in Early Childhood Education with a Bilingual Certification.  I am currently working towards my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  This year is my thirteenth year teaching, and they have all been here in Sharyland.  However, I started here at Wernecke Elem. twelve years ago when it first opened.  I have taught 2nd grade, kindergarten, and 4th grade.  I have a passion for what I do and look forward to my students' success.
    I have been married to my husband Jorge A. Ortiz for 17 years.  We have four children, Andrea (10th grader), Daniela (8th grader), Karina (6th grader), and my only son Jorge II (4th).    As a family we are big fans of baseball / softball, and travel all over Texas for my girls' tournaments.
    I look forward to getting to know your child and working hard towards their success.  I also look forward to building a relationship with you as well.  Together we can ensure that your child receives the education they deserve and use it to build a promising future.  Thank you in advance for your support.
