Hello, my name is Eleazar Gonzalez. I am the English/ESL teacher at Edna Tamayo House. This is a transitional facility where we receive students from all over the state of Texas – assigned here by courts, sent here from Texas Juvenile Justice Department State Schools, and also transferred here from other transitional facilities.
Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District has an agreement with the TJJD to provide a formal education for these youths while they reside within the city of Harlingen. Our students’ coursework is done online using the Edgenuity curriculum.
Our desire is that our students would use this opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to function and succeed in their communities.
Attitude is Everything!
My name is Alma Becerra, I am the Special Education Teacher at Edna Tamayo House. My goal to see our students succeed in the classroom and prepare them for a successful future. I am hopeful that together, the students and myself, we will make this a great year.
