Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cassandra Maldonado
Welcome! This will be my second year at the GTA Academy, and I'm so excited to have the opportunity to share my love of reading, language arts and history with these fabulous fifth graders.
I grew up in the Houston area and have degrees from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont and Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales in France. This will be my fourteenth year teaching and my eleventh year in Pearland ISD. My daughter, Camille, is a freshman at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. We have three dogs - a black Pug named Emma; a long-haired Chihuahua named Toni; and a brindle Boxer named Ginger. I love to take roadtrips, try new recipes, visit with my 95 year old grandmother, browse Half Price Books and write Yelp reviews.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
Please review your student's agenda daily. All homework and important reminders will be written in the agenda. I will also be using the Remind App to send out important reminders.
Graded papers go home on Tuesday; please sign and return the folder the next day. Any papers below a 70 must be corrected and returned within 3 days.
