Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit this site.  My name is Jacqueline Moreno and I teach 4th grade (all subjects). This is my fourth year with Hirsch Elementary.  I am retired from the US Navy and making the career change to teach the amazing students at Hirsch. 


 I have two children of my own.  My son is in fifth grade and my daughter is in  second grade.  They help me see each day that no two students are alike nor do they all learn in the same way.  My goal is to help each of my students find a passion for learning.  I want them to leave my class knowing how to enhance their strengths and develop their weaker areas.  My years in the military taught me that building a person up helps them learn to be independent and confident.

Hello Hawks! My name is Veronica Rangel and I am so excited to begin my first year as a Hirsch Hawk. This is my first year teaching and I am overjoyed to work with your scholars. I grew up in Houston, Texas and love the city. I am the youngest in my family, I have no children, but I am an aunt to the sweetest 5 and 1 year old. On my free time I enjoy working out, being outdoors, relaxing by the water, reading a book, or anything involved being with my family. I also love to travel and take road trips. I am excited for a fantastic year of learning, fun and adventure. I am looking forward to working with your student this year!

Hey there! This is my first year at Hirsch and I'm thrilled to work with my own group of scholars in the 4th grade. This is my 9th year as an educator. I previously taught at a charter school and in Houston ISD prior to making Hirsch my new home. When I have some free time, I like to explore the city of Houston and take day trips to nearby cities. I also love to curl up with a good book at home!

 

 I currently reside in Spring with my husband, 2 daughters, and 2 dogs. I'm originally from Los Angeles, California and while I miss that weather, Spring has become my home.  I consider myself a foodie and I LOVE food from all over the world. I also love to play sports, but soccer has my heart. I played soccer from early childhood all the way through college and I've done some coaching as well. I can't wait to learn more about each and every one of my new students and I'm looking forward to having a fabulous year!

My name is Mr. Guel and this is my first year at Hirsch Elementary.  This is my fourth year in education, and I'm excited to part of the Hirsch family.  

 
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I graduated from the University of Houston in 2012.  Fun fact, I actually grew up down the street from Hirsch, near the  Aldine district.  Teaching has been a fulfilling career and I'm thankful for all of the students I've encountered  (yes, I really do mean all).  I have a passion for teaching and molding young minds, while being a positive role model to my students.   
 
I look forward to a great 2018 -2019 school year.

Hey, Me llamo Alejandro Urquides and I´m the 4th grade Bilingual Teacher.  Yo nací en la Ciudad de Guadalajara, México... long time ago.  Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico and is totally, one of the most beautiful ones, cuna de tradiciones like Mariachi, Tacos al Pastor, Tortas Ahogadas, Pozole, etc.  I went to a private Chatolic School when I was a kid and I stayed in the same line all the way to college.  I'm a Graphic Designer, old school, with a Degree as Master in Art Restauration... ¿qué que es eso?  Well, when a piece of art gets damage in a museum, art gallery or some private collection, they can call me and I fix it.. basically, I love to work with paints, oils are the best.  Como te podrás dar cuenta, I love to paint and I have an addiction that is very dangerous: I TOTALLY LOVE BOOKS!!!  I love to read, read, read... and more reading.  I live with my 3 dogs, Vida and Bessy are old ladies, they are 15 and 14 yo.. and I have a Pit mix called Lexxy that is only 19 months and she goes to work out with me.. and yes, I love to exercise.. and I do crossfit and gym everyday... so, si me ves caminar despacito, is not because I'm old, it is just because I may be very sore from my work out from last night. Stay cool and peace!
