Welcome to Stonecreek Jr. High it is not only a pleasure to be teaching at one of the top Junior Highs in the Panama Buena Vista Union School District but it is also a great privilege to be your child's teacher. This is my 9th year teaching. I have 2 years of experience teaching junior high, but I feel my years at the high school and alternative education have really prepared me for junior high school students. I believe that every student is capable of learning no matter learning modality or disability. It is my job as a teacher to give your child the motivation necessary to excel and become not only the best student they could be but also a lifelong learner.
This year the 8th grade English class will be pushed and guided through common core aligned instruction that will prepare them for both higher education and the state mandated exam-SBAC. These students put in a lot of work during class, and because of that all I ask that they do at home is READ.
In our Read 180 class students will be striving to raise their reading levels in order to be able to achieve the goal of being placed in a grade level class. This class will equally be pushed through common core aligned instruction to also prepare them for higher education and the state mandated exam-SBAC.
Every year is a challenge for my students because I will push them to their full potential, and just a tad bit more. It is my goal to teach them that their education is the biggest gift they will ever receive therefore, they must take advantage of the opportunity.
Aside from being a teacher my other interests include spending time with my family; husband Jose Luis and two baby boys Sebastian and Cassiel, shopping, hanging out with friends, and staying healthy. On behalf our the entire class, I thank you for visiting our website and invite you to contact me via email: email@example.com should you have any further questions.
