Kindergarten and 1st Grades
Mrs. Galvez has been teaching with us as our Kindergarten teacher and we are very excited for her to also have first grade this year.
2nd and 3rd Grades
I love to learn and try to instill in my students that same love of learning. My relationship with Jesus is important in my life and it shows in my teaching style. I enjoy making learning fun and include many activities, field trips, and guest speakers in our classroom. My curriculum is on a 2 year rotation cycle. Math and Language Arts are taught at grade level. Students participate in an anti-bullying program every year. Students also have computers, PE, Music and Art. Starting in the 3rd grade students will participate in a national assessment call the Iowa Test of Basic Skills® (ITBS®) a nationally standardized achievement test for students in 3-12 grades.
4th, 5th and 6th grades
Welcome to the 4th, 5th and 6th grade classroom. I am passionate about teaching my students, and helping them to develop their character, to find their self worth, and to improve their talents. I love them. I validate them. I celebrate with them. I show them how to work hard and to find meaning in their work. In doing this, I provide learning experiences that include hands-on activities, large and small group discussions, student-directed projects, and team building.
I expect my students to treat others with respect and empathy. I want for them the gift Christ gives to us all when we seek a relationship with Him, and that is PEACE.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, but as I give. Therefore, do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).
