Maestra Maria

Fort Worth Teacher

Hola! I am Maria Crystal Retana. I am the daughter of two amazing, Mexican immigrants, who taught me the value of conserving our beautiful language, Español.

I was born and raised here in the wonderful city of Fort Worth where I attended elementary school all the way up to college, met my wonderful husband and had my cute, now 2 year-old son. In other words Fort Worth is my home.

I have a tremendous passion for nurturing young minds, and helping them explore. I have gained valuable experience as a bilingual educator, and am currently pursuing my Bachelors in Bilingual Elementary Education. A big dream and big accomplishment is to have my own classroom.

When I’m not at Mi Casita, I love to spend time with my husband and son watching movies, and building Legos. I like to read, arts & crafts and my all time favorite interior design.
