Candysse Cantu

5th Grade Special Education


Welcome to Our Class!

My name is Candysse Cantu and I am the new 5th grade inclusion teacher at OBIS! I have always had a passion for teaching students and love seeing a child's face when they realize they understand a new concept! I am very excited for this school year with your children and hope to support them as they continue to grow both academically and socially! Please feel free to reach out with any questions/concerns that you might have!
