Classroom Pets

Say hello to our little friends.

Cocoa is our Mexican Red hair tarantula. She loves crickets!

Dorito, Frito, Cheeto are our three Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Brownie and Snowball are our gerbils.

T-rex is our Tiger Salamander he just turned to a salamander from a water dog. Congratulate.


We'd like to rotate sending home a cricket keeper weekly to be filled with medium crickets from Clark's.  If your child comes home with the plastic cricket keeper, fill it with live crickets and send it back to the classroom.

About my class

Hello, my name is Daniel DeLaO, I am a the Kindergarten/First Grade teacher here at Sombra DeL Monte. I am so happy to be a part of this awesome community here at Sombra.   I am a National Board Teacher and Bilingual certified too.  I have two children, a daughter, 14 and a son, 9.  We love to hike all our New Mexico trails with our dogs. I love to read local authors and collect New Mexican art such as storytellers, Dia de Muertos, and Spanish Art.   I also  I am working on getting this classroom page together.  Each day I learn new ways to add to it.  


April is here and we are busy preparing for our Basket Bash at the end of April. Each class has been asked to provide a themed basket for a silent auction that night. Our theme is Car Wash. If each family can send in car wash items for our basket that would be great! Much thanks.
