My name is Kenzie Alejos and I am a 3rd grade bilingual ELA teacher at Ridgemont Elementary. I am a proud University of Houston Downtown Gator and graduate. I received my Bachelor’s Degree as a EC-6 Bilingual Generalist. Both of my parents are educators, therefore, education is a value that is near and dear to my heart. I am particularly passionate about reading because through the pages of a book children can experience adventures using their imagination. When I was a child, I would spend endless hours in my room reading and vicariously living through some of my favorite characters. I am a firm believer that in this life there are many things that we can lose, but knowledge is not one of them.
I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our 3 pets (Yes 3!)- Our dogs Honey, Princess Chloe, and our cat, Essie.
We love to travel and experience all the cuisine the world has to offer. Our favorite destinations often include tropical beaches.
I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year and look forward to helping them grow as readers. I want to instill in them that they are capable of being anything that they set their minds and hearts to.
