I am delighted to have your child as a student in my classroom this school year. The theme this year is, “Rigor + Relevance + Relation = Success,” and by working together we can help your child achieve his/her potential. I have high expectations for each child and by working as a team we can achieve our goals.
I attended De Zavala Elementary, Tafolla Junior High, Lanier High School, and Our Lady of the Lake University. I am on my 27th year of teaching and all 27 years have been here at Gardendale Elementary. I have taught from 2nd – 6th grades, so I have a variety of experiences in teaching.
In order to meet our goals, we need to understand that a good attitude, best behavior, and completion of our work must be achieved. Please help by seeing that your child:
· Reads daily
· Studies spelling words and science/reading vocabulary
· Studies multiplication tables
· Completes all other homework assignments
My conference times are before school (by appointment), during school (1:40pm – 2:25pm) or after school (3:15pm – 4:00pm). You can also send a note, call the school to leave a message, or email me at email@example.com.
I look forward to working with each child and creating new learning techniques for them to use as they continue their education. I have as high expectations for them as you do, so I look forward to meeting with each one of you to ensure your child is mastering 5th grade state standards.
