Mrs. Cruz

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Cruz and I am excited to be at Esperanza as the Gifted Specialist.  This is my 28th year in the Deer Valley District.  During those years, I've had the opportunity of teaching third grade, being the Media Specialist, working in the English Language Department and now in Gifted Services.  I look forward to meeting and getting to know you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
