Welcome to Mrs. La Fuente's Page

As an educator we do more than simply teach. We are constantly evolving as teachers, learners, and as humans. I firmly believe that if I am not learning alongside my students I am failing myself, as well as my students. I have a student-centered philosophy on education. Students should feel encouraged to ask questions, and explore their own education using the form of learning that works best for them. I believe that students should be active learners in their learning community, and have a voice as to how they learn. I will strive daily to meet my students on their educational level and build upon what they already know in order to get them to the next level of success. I believe every level of success should be valued and is important. I want my students to realize that as long as they apply themselves, they can reach any level of success.

  • This is my 5th year teaching at Deepwater Elementary. I myself am also a former Deepwater cougar! I love this community, and the students I have the privilege of working with on a daily basis. 
  • I'm a first generation college student. I attended Alvin Community College, University of Houston- Clear Lake, and I am currently a graduate student through Lamar University.
  • I spend my Monday afternoons with one of the coolest groups of kids at our campus. Our DWE chess club! 
  • I'm a member of the house of Integrity. Integrity Chant: Integrity, Integrity Rah Rah Rah!!! It's good for you, it's good for me, it's good for everybody. The best that we can ever be is when we have INTEGRITY.
