Mrs. Maria Diaz
I am excited to join the GISD team this year! This will be my 8th year teaching English Language Learners. I have taught 1st grade Bilingual, 4th grade Dual language, and Kindergarten-5th grade art.
I am originally from Nocona, TX. I graduated from Nocona High, received my BFA from Midwestern State University, and accepted a position with the Alvarado ISD school district.
I moved to Lewisville in 2013, which made me live closer to my brother. Lewisville ISD helped shape most of my professional experience.
Moving to Gainesville was unexpected, yet a beautiful blessing for my family. I believe I picked the most difficult time to re-enter teaching, but I also understand that it is the most crucial as well. I have never had a job as rewarding as teaching.
