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 dgrantha@episd.org.
