Welcome to First GRADE!
I am Mrs. Rodriguez. I am excited to serve your son or daughter in their academic, personal and social development. I have about ten years of experience working in a Dual Immersion program and more than fifteen years of experience working with youth in the community. I am a teacher because I like to work hard and to help others achieve success. I want my students to experience significant and interesting learning that applies to their lives.
CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE
Teachers, parents and students are equal colleagues in education. It is important to cultivate the attitude that we are always learning and that’s why I’m always open to suggestions and help. Please don’t hesitate to call me on the phone or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students should arrive by 8:00 each day. Monday through Thursday we line up outside the classroom and on Friday we line up on the basketball court for our weekly assembly. Please be sure to sign the sign-in sheet every day. If your child has an older sibling, he or she may sign the younger one in also. Students may not leave without a signature.
We have Mrs. Encinas as a teacher aid in the classroom from 9:00 to 9:50 am.
My name is Ms. Sevilla and this year I have the privilege of working with the incredible 5th grade students. After graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara, I taught English in Guatemala, Mexico and also here in the States. In addition, I have taught various levels of Spanish language courses.
I am very excited to have this opportunity to work with the 5th graders and I know that together we will… ¡Seguir Adelante!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at: email@example.com
I’ve been a kindergarten teacher in Santa Barbara since 2001.
First, I taught English and Spanish at “Cesar Chavez Charter School” and now at “Adelante” – both are dual-immersion bilingual schools.
Previously, he taught French and English for three years at “Le Lycée International de Los Angeles” (grades I and II)
I come from France, where I taught for 12 years. There, I taught kindergarten, first, fourth and fifth grades. Most of my family lives in La Seyne Sur Mer, a beautiful city on the French Riviera along the Mediterranean sea.
I have the pleasure of working with Miss Garcia, my colleague in kindergarten.
I am very excited to begin this new school year, because Adelante is implementing a program called “TRIBES” that promotes respect for individual differences and with which students can quickly learn to be responsible for themselves and others.
I love learning, and appreciate the privilege of facilitating that in my students. I feel very honored to have the opportunity to pass this love on to the children.
Hello! My name is Veronica Ramos and I am one of the 1st grade teachers. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach here at Adelante. I was born in Southern California to Mexican parents and a family full of traditions and culture. My parents passed down those traditions and instilled the importance of education. I got my Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Chicana/o Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2008. Two years later I returned and earned a Masters in Education and a bilingual teaching credential at the Gevirtz School of Education in 2011.
I spent my summer reflecting on my teaching practices and submersing myself into Spanish literature. I read several books over the summer most of them for leisure, the one I most enjoyed was El Zorro by Isabel Allende.
My teaching philosophy is very much centered on cooperative work and allowing the students to construct their learning. This means students will work in small groups as well as with partners in order to learn with and from each other. I believe that my philosophy will align nicely with Tribes/Tribus that our school will be implanting.
The 4 Essential agreements of Tribes/Tribus are:
To begin our morning the students are expected to line up out side of the classroom by 8:00am ready to come in and learn. We will end our day at 3:00pm with the exception of Thursdays when they will be dismissed at 1:00pm.
I am looking forward to meeting the students and families. My hopes are to create a newsletter that will contain information about what the students are learning and share the accomplishments that the class will have. I invite you keep an open line of communication between us through email: firstname.lastname@example.org or/and phone: (805) 966-7392 x 1306
