• Welcome to First Grade!


    I am EXCITED to have your child in my class this year!  It is so thrilling that we will be spending our first grade year together in this beautiful school, Atascocita Springs Elementary!  My goal this year is to make sure that each child knows success and knows that they MATTER.  This is our motto at ASE: We Matter…

    As you are entrusting me with your child, I would like you to know a little something about me. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I lived in San Antonio for 10 years and this is my second year back. I am a graduate of the University of Houston (Go Coogs!) where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Early Childhood Bilingual Education. This will be my 13th year of teaching but my second year at this school.

    I really enjoy spending time with my family. I am married to a wonderful husband, Rey Cardenas, and I have two loving children; Rey Rey, who will be in 3rd grade this year, and Sofia who is 4 years old. They sure know how to keep me busy.

    Parents are the most important people in a child’s life. You and I will work together to ensure your child’s success in the classroom. I will need your support in the areas of academics, homework, and discipline. In return, you can expect me to keep you informed on your child’s school experiences. If we work together, I am confident that we will have a successful year.

    You can reach me by email at secilia.cardenas@humble.k12.tx.us or by phone at (281) 641-3682.

                                                                              Dedicated to students,

    Mrs. Cardenas
