My name is Rowelyn Dela Cruz and I am excited to be your 1st and 2nd grade teacher this year!
I was born and raised in Florida, and here I attended Walker Memorial Academy, Forest Lake Academy then went on to college at the University of Central Florida. I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and my Multiple Subject Credential. This will be the start of my 12th year teaching.
I was fortunate and blessed to participate, with other teachers, in the inaugural cohort of STEM Teaching Fellows at the University of Notre Dame. What an awesome learning experience for us and I am looking forward to sharing these concepts and ideas with the students!
In my free time, I enjoy playing with my 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son, listening to music or watching musicals, and spending time with family. I am thrilled for this school year and all the fun, learning experiences we will share!
