Welcome to 4th/5th Grade Dual Language!
I love to read! As an educator for 27 years, mother of five, and grandmother of two, my goal is to teach the love of reading to all children as if they were my own. I attended Texas Tech University on an athletic scholarship, and came home to continue my studies and graduate from the University of Texas at El Paso.
Our students will be faced with challenges in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). Our 4th grade students will be assessed in reading, writing, and math. The 4th Grade STAAR Reading is a multiple choice test with 44 questions. The STAAR Writing is a combination of an expository essay and multiple choice questions on revising and editing. Our 5th grade students will be assessed in reading, math, and science. The 5th Grade STAAR Reading is a multiple choice test with 46 questions.
This year, we have added the Social Studies component to our English and Reading classes. All three subjects will be integrated to help support students' learning experience. The MacArthur teachers are dedicated to the success of all students. Pony Up!
