Mrs. Beverly Cruz » Welcome


My name is Beverly Cruz. I am beginning my 29th year in education, and this is my 27th year in Willis ISD. I am the Campus Math Instructional Coach at Cannan Elementary. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Sam Houston State University in 1988. My certifications include elementary education (grades 1 through 8) with a specialization in reading, and English as a Second Language. I am also certified to teach Gifted and Talented students. I have taught 3rd through 8th grade over the years with most of them being in a math and science classroom.

Throughout my career, I have served as mentors to new teachers to our district, supervised method students and numerous student teachers from Sam Houston State University in my classroom.

I am a lifelong resident of Willis ISD. My husband and I have been married for 31 years. We have a daughter who is a nurse, and a son who is a firefighter/EMT. Both kids attended and graduated from Willis ISD. We also have one granddaughter who is seven and now attends WISD.

I am proud to be at Cannan Elementary! Thank you for sharing your children with me everyday!
