Ms. Carrie De La Cruz

Welcome to Hutto Middle School. My name is Carrie De La Cruz, and I am a Co-Teacher for English Language Arts and a Case Manager for Special Education. I am a graduate of Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN, and I have dedicated my life to working with and advocating for students of all ages and grade levels. A few years ago, I stepped away from working as an educator to become an advocate for the Protection and Advocacy Agency in the state. As an advocate, I worked with individuals who had been committed to institutional settings throughout the state to ensure their life was lived free of abuse/neglect. While I found that work extremely rewarding, I was drawn back to education this year and am excited to start back at Hutto Middle for my 13th year of teaching.
