Welcome Ridgeview Elementary Roadrunners!
Welcome to another exciting year of learning and discovery! I am overjoyed to be your child’s teacher this year. I consider it a great honor to work in the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District.
I attended California Baptist University for my undergraduate studies, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Intervention. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I attended the University of Redlands and completed the teacher credentialing program.
My teaching experience and passion for education began in Honduras 11 years ago, where I had the opportunity to work with children at an underprivileged school and children’s disability center during my time spent there. This is my fifth year teaching at Ridgeview Elementary and I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful staff of teachers! Teaching is one of my greatest passions and I am committed 100% to ensuring that your child succeeds in every way possible.
I look forward to working with each of the students that have been placed in my class. I am extremely excited for the opportunities that lay before us all as we begin this new school year and take part in developing an inquisitive, inclusive, equitable, and caring school culture. We will develop this type of community by implementing systems such as specific leadership traits including honesty, kindness, respect, and responsibility along with positive behavior reinforcement.
The expectation in my classroom is that each student give their absolute best effort at all times. The level of rigor of 5th grade Common Core standards is demanding. With that said, my classroom mirrors the same level of rigor as well as high expectations. Therefore, each student is expected to work hard. The classroom climate will facilitate personal responsibility for learning, a structured, yet fun, learning environment, and many opportunities for hands on learning through Project Based Learning. I strongly believe that each student is capable of immeasurable success and I am confident that they will reach their fullest potential this year.
Let's make it a great year Roadrunners!
