Ms. Carmen Ontiveros


My name is Carmen Ontiveros, the Math Center teacher at Hastings Elementary. I enjoy working with students and teachers as we collaboratively work toward making Hastings Huskies the best we can be!

I started my teaching career in San Antonio before joining the professional community in Dallas. I worked in Dallas as a classroom teacher before moving up to the Bilingual Department as an Instructional Specialist in one of the area offices. After several years of supporting teachers and principals as a Specialist, I ventured into the administrative level as an Assistant Principal in Area 4. Soon after that I was recruited by a company in the private sector that eventually became part of the McGraw Hill Companies. I had the honor of traveling the country training and  supporting teachers and principals in best practices for effective classrooms and schools. After several years of travel, I returned to Dallas as an Academic Coordinator. I worked in that position for several years before joining Duncanville ISD. I joined Duncanville as a first grade Bilingual teacher before accepting my current role as Math Center teacher at Hastings.

Working in Duncanville has been an adventure and very rewarding. I look forward to continuing my professional career among the dynamic professionals in Duncanville ISD.
