Ms. Maria Cristina Larrea

I am Ms. Larrea, your fifth-grade Bilingual teacher.

I am from Caracas, Venezuela, where I taught for 15 years before I came to Texas. This is my fifteenth year at Fort Bend ISD, and the fifth at Townewest Elementary. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a Master’s in Education. My two grown sons have both graduated college and are now working (one in Texas, one in Canada).

I enjoy working with children, helping them understand and enjoy the world around them, appreciate and apply what they learn in school to their daily lives, and creating life-long learners and problem solvers.

When not in school, I love to travel and explore new places, or visit my son or friends, catch up on my scrapbooking, gardening, or sewing, and always, always, there is time to relax with a good book.
