Welcome to Math Class!
Mrs. D. Alanis

Welcome Hornedo Tornado students and parents! 
I am truly excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year here at Hornado Middle School.  This year I will be teaching Pre-AP 7th grade and 8th grade general math classes. I am coming to you with 28 years of experience in education.  My family and I are coming here from Laredo, Texas.  I started my career as a teacher in elementary in which I taught 5th grade for 10 years .  My teaching specialization is in Mathematics so after that time I chose to transfer to middle school and teach mathematics .  I have been teaching middle school math since for 18 years.  I have taught 7th and 8th grade including Algebra I classes.  My passion for teaching math came from a teacher in high school who was a great role model.  I have had the great pleasure of teaching in several fantastic schools in South Texas and now am truly excited to continue this journey in El Paso. My husband, Orlando, works as a field major for the Texas Department of Public Safety.  A job promotion is what brought us to El Paso.  He and I have twin boys that are 12.  Ian and Ryan will attend Hornedo this school year as 7th graders.  In closing, I am looking forward to an outstanding 2nd year here at Hornedo.  I am here with the desire to help my students learn math and maybe even like it a bit more than they have before.  I will work using a variety of methods so as to teach to everyones learning style.  Parents it is best to reach me via e-mail at My conference period is during 5th block from 12:45-1:30.  Communication between all of us is key to students success.
