Montes, Maria

                                  Welcome to Mrs. Montes' 5th grade Class


My name is Maria Montes, this is my second year teaching 5th grade. Prior to this year I have taught 3rd and fourth grade. I have been teaching for 6 years for the El Paso Independent School District. Three of these years I have been teaching at LB Johnson Elementary. I graduated from UTEP with a bachelors in Education.


We are currently learning a lot of exciting new things in 5th grade. In math we have just started learning how to solve order of operations which the children are very excited about because it's a closer step  to middle school. In science we have been learning rapid changes such as volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, and tornadoes.


I am available to meet with parents during conference period from 2:30-3:15. I can also be contacted at (915) 236-3925 to schedule an appointment, or by email at mdmonte1@episd.org  .
