Second Grade


Ronda Hancock, Teacher

My name is Ronda Hancock. I am a second grade teacher at Torres.  I graduated from TAMU in 2001 with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I got my first teaching job in Judson ISD.  I taught kindergarten for 3 years and then was able to loop up with my students to 1st grade.  I then taught 1st grade for 5 years.  I took a 3 year break from teaching to be a stay at home mom with my 2 boys, now ages 8 and 6.  I am so glad I had that opportunity.  I love teaching but it is time consuming and was able to devote those first few years to my babies. My boys and I love taking field trips to experience hands on activities. We enjoy outings to zoos, Texas State Aquarium, Lighthouse beach, Children's Museums, San Antonio Train museum (both love trains), water parks, Morgan’s Wonderland, riding big vehicles, and more.  We love adventures! This year I’m excited to start my 7th year at Torres Elementary.I love being a TORRES TIGER!

Hi there!
My name is Jenna Shafer and I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher! This is my second year teaching and my first year to be in second grade. I am so excited to be apart of the Torres Tiger team this year!
A little about me... I grew up right here in Victoria, TX! I graduated from the University of Houston- Victoria in December of 2017. I love to spend time with my husband, family and friends.  I also have three fur-babies who I adore, Emmy, Maddox and Sadie.
I am so excited to have a great year this year! I believe that by working together, we can make this year the best! I 100% believe in all of my students and cannot wait to see where this year takes them! Please do not hesitate to ask any questions!!
