First and foremost I would love to give you the biggest warm welcome to Malala Yousafzai Elementary! My name is Mrs. Hannah Cantu and I will be teaching Kindergarten this year. I grew up in Fort Bend County and attended elementary through high school in the local area.
Education & Background:
I attended the University of Houston for my undergraduate degree, in which I obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Teaching and Learning in December 2016. I student taught at an International Baccelaurate Kindergarten classroom for a year before graduation.
I continued enrollment at University of Houston for my graduate degree, my Masters of Education in Social Education. My graduate program Capstone Project focused on diverse and intentional children's literature, and this is a huge passion of mine that I continue to this day in my classroom. This will be my fourth year teaching and I can't wait for the year to begin!
In my spare time on the weekends, I love to go to the gym, go hiking, read, and spend time with my husband and my two daughters.
I am so excited to provide a safe, collaborative, and welcoming environment in my classroom. I cannot wait to enstill a lifelong love of reading with your students!
My MYE Vision:
Malala Yousafzai Elementary School will embody everything that is associated with its namesake. Everyone deserves a qualilty education but also the encouragement and support to do so. MYE will strive to provide the utmost in education for our student body, as Malala has fought and continues to fight for, all across the world.
