About me

Hello parents!

My name is Cynthia Cigarroa and I'm proud to be your child's Language/Writing teacher this year. Your child will have 3 teachers this year: Mrs. Gamez will teach Reading and Mrs. Castellanoz-Ruiz will teach Math.

I began my teaching career in January 2001 at Goose Creek CISD in Baytown, Texas. In 2004, my family and I moved to Harlingen. I'm starting my 12th year with HCISD. This will be my 10th year teaching here at Bowie Elementary. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Last December, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with my Master's Degree.

Ever since I was a young girl, I wanted to become a teacher. I remember playing school and having my younger siblings act as my students. I have made my dream come true! Now I want to help your child achieve theirs. I firmly believe in hard work, having a positive mindset, and the power of yet. Your child will be successful if they believe in themselves and their learning potential.

On a personal note: I have 2 children (Kayla, 24 and Luis, 19) and have been married to my hubby, Juan, of 20 more years. We are empty nesters. However, I have 3 fur babies, whom I adore!
