Ms. Esqueda

My name is Ms. Traci Esqueda.  I am a native Texan.  I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. My parents lived in the same house I grew up in there, until they moved in 2000.  I graduated from Irvin High School and then continued my education at the University of Texas at El Paso. My Bachelor’s degree is in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Elementary Education, with a focus on Early Childhood. In 1995, I moved to Killeen to pursue my teaching career. I spent my first year in Killeen teaching Kindergarten at Bellaire Elementary School. In 1996, I started teaching Kindergarten at Harker Heights Elementary, and have been here ever since.  Teaching Kindergarten is my passion, it is the only grade level that I have ever taught.  I love the enthusiasm and joy that young students share with me each day.  Watching the face of a child learn something new is my motivation.
