Mrs. Lisa Cruz

Hello, my name is Lisa Cruz, and this is my 13th year teaching 8th grade US History. I am originally from the Rio Grande Valley, and recently moved to Sienna in August 2017. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley (formerly known as UTPA) with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Biology. I am currently certified as a 4-8 Generalist, with emphasis in History and Science. I taught 9 years at Weslaco ISD and one year in Manvel Junior High. This will be my fourth year at Ronald Thornton Middle School and I am excited to work with a wonderful staff and the families of Sienna. My husband and I are happily married with an amazing blended family of 5 wonderful children ranging from ages 10-22. I enjoy spending time with my family watching movies, playing sports, cooking, playing in the park, watching our Seattle Seahawks during football season and exploring the woods of Colorado.
