I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a bachelors in Early Childhood Education Birth through 4th grade. I have taught first grade for the past three years in southern Arizona. Before that I worked with the  Head Start in Arizona for three years as a pre-school teacher. I taught Kindergarten at a charter school for one year. 
I recently relocated to Rio Rancho and am very excited to be with such a wonderful school district and supportive community.

Don't forget to return volunteer sheets, 

they are due the 10th. So far our class 

has had only two replies. In order for this

to be successful year, we need help from

our families. Hope to hear from you!

I am still looking for volunteers that are interested in helping the class at home. We need our math workbooks pages to be taken out and sorted. Please contact me if you are interested in helping out. 

Book It!

​In addition to the Vista Grande's Reading Initiative, our class will also be participating in the Book It! program. It lasts 6 months and allows children to win a coupon for a free Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut each month. All they need to do is color each day that they read for a least 20 mins. Once the have completed the entire month, they turn it in with a parent/guardian signature and they get the coupon for the Personal Pan Pizza. They must have each day colored for them to receive their coupon. 
This is a program that takes place within the 50 states and if they collect all six official stickers from the Pizza Hut website's Passport to Reading, they are entered for a chance to win their own 100-book library. 
I like this program as it provides them a personal incentive for reading. I have added a link to the official rules and details in the links. 
Happy Reading!
