My name is Mrs. Alvarez and this little intro will allow you to get to know me a little better. I have been married for 6 years and have 2 beautiful little girls who are 4 years old. I am beginning a career in education and am so excited. Since I was a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher and now I am fulfilling my dream. So, to everyone I say "Pursue your dreams" (quote from Mr. Rumohr, my 4th grade teacher).
