" Let's reach for the highest STAR. Excuses stop at the doorstep."
This is my 29th year of teaching. I started at the age 19, right after graduation. The first 15 years of my career was spent in an all boys, private, Catholic School. I handled 5th, 6th, and 7th grade Math. During that time, I wrote several work/textbooks in Math, Reading, Writing, and Social Studies which were used in private schools in the Philippines. I was recruited to teach in HISD in 2002. From then, I've been teaching fifth grade Math. I was chosen twice as HISD Campus Teacher of the Year (2006 and 2010) and recognized several times as ASPIRE Highly Effective Teacher for being in the top 10% of HISD teachers whose students made the highest levels of academic growth.This year, the fifth grade will face a bigger task of bridging the gap as the curriculum was revised a year ago. Children are expected to use their SUPER POWERS to be successful in their journey in my class.
