My name is Amy Puga and am so excited to be your child's 5th grade Math teacher! Teaching is such a rewarding field to be a part of and one that I enjoy doing. I grew up in the Dallas area in Allen, Texas where my family currently lives. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in elementary education specializing in music and reading. Hook'em Horns!
Upon graduating, I chose to stay in the Austin area. I have taught in Hays CISD, St. Louis Catholic School, and now Eanes ISD. I have taught both 4th and 5th grades and love them both! I am so grateful to have found a wonderful community here at Cedar Creek. This is my 18th year teaching...15 years of which have been here at CCE. I look forward to a fabulous year with your children. May we grow and shine together!
While teaching, I met my husband Soor-el. He is currently the Director of Bilingual Education in Marble Falls ISD. Needless to say, education runs in our family! We have two incredibly amazing sons. Aiden is 11 years old and Evan is 8 years old. Aiden will be a 6th grader at HCMS and Evan will be a 3rd grader here at CCE. We enjoy every minute with them! When not at school, you can find us on the soccer field, attending karate, playing outside, playing the piano, dancing, or just spending quality time with each other.
In our spare time we love salsa dancing, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and much more. I especially love to sing, play the piano, running and/or other fitness activities, baking and shopping!
I look forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
