Mrs. Cantu


Hello everyone! 

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. I am incredibly proud to say I am an "OG" Malala staff member, having been here since the beginning! 


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 curriculum design and instruction, with an emphasis in diverse and intentional children's literature. I also minored in educational technology.These are huge passions of mine that I continue incorporating to this day in my classroom. This will be my sixth year in the classroom 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. Since the pandemic, I have also fancied myself a pretty decent chef, and discovered a love of cooking! 

I am so excited to provide a safe, collaborative, and welcoming environment in my classroom. I cannot wait to instill a lifelong love of reading with your students! I cannot wait to begin a partnership with you, and your child, on the start of their educational journey. 



My MYE Vision:
Malala Yousafzai Elementary School will embody everything that is associated with its namesake. Everyone deserves a quality 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.
