Baca, Deanne

Welcome to my class page!

My name is Deanne Baca and I am your child's first grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my seventh year at Tom Lea and my third year teaching first grade. I have seven years experience teaching kindergarten. I am a 2007 graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelors degree in interdisciplinary studies.

First grade is a time of tremendous growth and learning and it is essential that we work together as a team. Your child's achievement depends on the support that comes from the parent/guardian and the teacher together. I enforce a philosophy of discipline which focuses on a sense of community and caring. I believe in a positive classroom atmosphere and fully expect all of my students to make good choices everyday! If you ever need to reach me you can do so by emailing me at
