Hello! My name is Jass Torres, and I'm thrilled to say this is my 11th year as an elementary school teacher. I grew up in Laredo, TX and graduated with a Bachelor degree in Business Administration and International Economics from Texas A&M International University in 2004. I began my teaching career in the Carrollton Farmers Branch School District, where I taught for ten years before moving to Prosper ISD.
I truly feel passionate about teaching. I strive to create meaningful and enduring relationships with my students, their families and the community I serve. Helping students achieve their highest potential has fueled my motivation for teaching since day one. I love being part of the learning process. Watching children grow and achieve their highest levels of learning is what I aim for everyday as an educator.
This school year, I will be teaching both English and Spanish Language Arts as well as Social Studies to both sections of the Dual Language classes. Additionally, I will be a co-sponsor for the Rucker REACH Team.
Currently, I live in Little Elm with my husband Ivan and my daughter Valerie. During my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work in Prosper as a Dual Language teacher and have the opportunity to share with others my Mexican-American heritage. Spreading the love for bilingualism is something that is very near and dear to my heart and I'm so excited to do this now in the PISD community.
