About Me

  •  My name is Olga Zapata-Hallamek I have been Cedar Creek Elementary for 15 years. I have taught prekinder, first, second, third grade, and now I am a reading teacher.  Education is my calling, and I'm honored to be teaching such wonderful group of kids. I love to see their confidence grow as they learn new things.
    I was born in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. My family moved to this country when I was 10 years old.  I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, then attended Texas State University in San Marcos.  I graduated college with a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, and went back to school to become a teacher.  I also have a Masters in School Administration from Lamar University.  
    I am truly greatful to live and work at Cedar Creek! It warms my heart to see the children from this community grow, especially my previous students.
