Rocio Lopez-Cortez

Primary 2 Assistant Guide
My name is Rocio Lopez Cortez. I am very excited and grateful to be a part of the Athena community. I will be an Assistant Guide in Primary 1.

I was born and raised here in Austin, TX. I am a bilingual speaker; Spanish is my first language. I have worked with children for about six years spanning in age from infants through school age. In my free time I ride horses, spend time with my husband, and work on projects for my Etsy shop. I also enjoy traveling with my family whenever we can!

After I graduated high school, I worked in a Spanish immersion school part time and a play-based school while I was in Austin Community College working towards a Registered Dental Assistant certification. During my practice there, I felt like something was missing and that’s when I figured out that my true passion is working with children. Even though this is my second year in a Montessori environment, I am very eager to learn more about the Montessori philosophy and get to know each and one of your children.

“Athena is Montessori with flexibility. What a perfect combination of Montessori learning and respect with fun. As a working parent I find the after care options and extracurricular programs to be priceless!”
