Meet the Teacher:

Hello 8th graders!  My name is Mrs. Moreno.  I am pleased to be your eighth grade teacher this year.  I have been teaching at Sharyland North for the past eight years.  I graduated from the University of Texas Pan- American.  I am passionate about teaching and look forward to reading our class novels together!

While I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school....I enjoy traveling, shopping, dining-out and spending time with my husband, my two sons and our two boston terriers. 
I have lived in Texas, South Carolina and Virginia.  Texas is my favorite :)
