Mrs. Maria I. Rodrigues

Welcome, Wildcats!

I am so excited to be part of the Mission West Elementary family and to be your Special Education Resources/ICS Teacher.

Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, I lived in The Big Apple for a long time. I loved the culture and diversity of the city. My teaching started as an elementary bilingual teacher, with kindergarten and first graders, followed by my amazing adventure at Clements High School where I was a Spanish Teacher for 5 years. Before I became an educator, I had a successful business career in banking, working with different financial institutions in the states of New York, New Jersey, and here in Houston, TX. I am the mother of a wonderful almost 11-year-old boy, that keeps me very busy with school and sports activities. I like to travel and have free time with my friends and family.
