Mrs. Kimberly Saldivar

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to Fourth Grade!   This is my tenth year of teaching.  I am entering my fifth year at Stevens as an English Language Reading Arts Teacher.   I have previously taught Third and First Grades as well as PK.   

 Reading is everywhere My overall goal as a teacher is to make sure that your child becomes an avid reader.   One that enjoys reading on their own.   I teach my students to become life-long learners.  Your child will constantly make text connections, such as, text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world.   This will prepare them for their academic journey in life.  I believe every child can learn in their own way and at their own pace.    

I am a fluent Spanish speaker, as a matter of fact, Spanish is my first language.   I was an ESL student just like many of our Stallions at Stevens.    I am a native Houstonian and proud daughter of Mexican parents.  I am a first generation American and the first in my family to graduate from college.  I earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Houston-Downtown.   In my spare time, you will find me either on a hiking trip or at an Astros game with my husband of 16 years and my two sons. 

As a parent I know all to well the importance of home support.  By working togetheryour child will be successful academically.   Please know that I am available for any questions and/or concerns via my school email or Class Dojo.   Thank you and I am excited to be your child’s teacher this school year!
