School: Raul Quintanilla Middle School
I work; I volunteer; I study; I learn; and I listen so I can be the best possible resource for my teachers and our students. I know my weaknesses. However, I truly believe EVERY student can learn and will succeed. Working as a teacher I had a direct impact on all my students. I worked as an AVID teacher, coordinator and coach my job description mirrors Stand for Children's mission. I strived to bring challenging lessons, guest speakers to share ‘real-world’ experiences into the classroom. I had college tutors to help engage students and I built relationships that continue to grow. Now, as an Instructional Coach and planning a new middle school, students are my constant focus. What can I do or provided to make them successful not just in school but in their lives? How can I use my time, resources and relationships to see this next generation grow? I want our student’s college ready, career ready and community ready.
