Mrs. Cantu

My name is Jessica Cantu and I am a 4th grade bilingual teacher. I am a product of Killeen ISD schools. I had the privilege of attending Harker Heights Elementary, Mountain View, Liberty Hill and Harker Heights High School. Proceeding my education in Harker Heights, I decided to follow the legacy in my family and attended the University of Texas at Austin. While there, I received two bachelor’s degrees in Youth and Community Studies and in Spanish Language Teaching. After graduation, I went to Texas State to obtain my Masters in Bilingual Education. I am happily married and the mother of an adorable little boy. I have taught for five years in 3rd grade and this will be my third year in 4th grade. I enjoy being a bilingual teacher and empowering them to dream BIG! I believe they can overcome obstacles and achieve great things with hard work and dedication, as I did.
