Welcome to 5th Grade
Teacher : Mr. GuzmanWelcome to a new and exciting school year 2018-2019.Meet the TeacherI am very proud to say that I am a 1973 graduate from Edgewood High School. I lived and was raised in the Edgewood community since graduation from college. I come from a family of 6 of which 3 are teachers with BAs and MAs in Education. I attended the Edgewood Schools from Pri-primer to the 12th grade (Coronado Elementary, Escobar Jr. High and Edgewood High School). I have been teaching for 40 years all of which have been in Edgewood I.S.D. This school year will mark my 41st year. I graduated from UTSA in 1978 with a BA in Education(1st-8th grade) and a MA in 2001 in Education also from UTSA.It is my intention to make this school year a rewarding experience for everyone by providing a quality education that will add on to what each student brings to 5th grade from 4th grade. At the end of this school year, it is my goal to prepare students for the STAAR tests in the areas of math, reading and science and to prepare them to enter into the next phase in life, which is the middle school years, grades 6th, 7th and 8th grade. I know that it is a big step that will be taken this year and a lot will be expect of the students as the year continues.
Being a Graduate from this great district, I hold very high expectations for my students. I expect them to graduate from high school and continue their higher education goals, be sucessful and be proud of who they are.
I would like very much for them to come back to visit and tell about their success.
