While living in TX, Ms. Ambriz asked God, "How can I make the world a better place?" Thus, Ms. Ambriz began her teaching journey in Georgetown, TX Independent School District as a Pre-K Teacher's Aide.
Since Ms. Ambriz and her family have lived throughout the Sierra Vista and Vail/Tucson areas off-and-on since 2001, they chose to move here in 2019 where she taught 4th grade at the SSA East followed by Pre-K at St. Joseph.
Ms. Ambriz is a proud and blessed "Mami" of three great kids that were all born in Germany! They have two dogs. In her free time she loves to volunteer as a Sacramental Preparation teacher at the DM AFB Parish, as well as, she loves to work-out, practice yoga and walk her dogs. Edna is a life-long learner! She loves to read, write and stay in touch with friends and family. She believes that she can make the world a better place, or wake up each day and work hard to achieve what she is called to do!
