I am the new Fifth grade bilingual teacher. I have taught for 23 and have been a Fifth grade teacher for more the 12 years. I have also taught First, Second and Fourth grade, but enjoy Fifth grade the most. I am a graduate from UTEP. Go Miners!
We are a self-contained classroom which means we learn about all subjects. As a Fifth grader it is important that we focus on getting ready for Middle School and by doing that we have a Homework Agenda and homework Mondays thru Fridays every week. We are focusing on learning strategies for comprehension in Reading, we also connect a lot of our reading to Science and in turn do a lot of Math in Science. These three concepts are especially important because they are tested on all three for the STAAR to be able to move on to Middle School.
I am available to meet with parents during my conference period which is from 2:30pm to 3:10pm. You can also contact me at 915 236-3925 to schedule an appointment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about anything your child is working on in class or any other concerns.
