Jennan Sliman - Fourth Grade ESL


sliman.jpgHello! My name is Jennan Sliman and this is my second year teaching 4th grade. I graduated with honors from St. Edward’s University with a bachelor’s in English Literature. My favorite children’s author is Jerry Spinelli, although I didn’t study him in college. I love working in upper elementary and guiding students to become more engaged and critical thinkers. When I’m not at school, I try to go on as many hiking and camping trips as possible.




Astrid Martinez - Fourth Grade Bilingual


astrid_mtz42.jpgHola! I am Astrid Marie Martinez and this is my second year teaching Fourth Grade. I moved to Texas from beautiful Coamo, Puerto Rico and have grown to love Austin and this awesome school! I attended Syracuse University and graduated with honors from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. I also obtained my Juris Doctor there. While working with the government, I discovered my true passion was to help young children and I have enjoyed my experience of becoming a teacher. Some of my favorite things to do include reading, exploring new places, and being able to relax near a nice beach!
