Hello My Name Is...

April DeLaCruz

I am a 2nd Grade teacher and I LOVE my job. I graduated from South Plains College with an associate’s degree and then continued to Lubbock Christian University with Pre K-6th grade and minored in English. I have a Bachelor of Science and Interdisciplinary Studies. I have been in Whitharral for 14 years; I subbed for 10 years and have been teaching for four years. Before I came to Whitharral so that my husband and I’s kids could go to school here, I taught Pre K in Fort Worth. I grew up in a big city and knew nothing about the country when I moved here. My husband, brother-in-law, mother-in-law, and all of her siblings graduated from Whitharral. We moved here from Fort Worth just so our children could attend Whitharral. When my children graduate, they will be lifers. Jacob is a junior in high school and will graduate in the 2017- 2018 school year. Julia is an 8th grader and will graduate in 2021.
