1 Welcome, parents! 1. Write a “someone special” note to your child. (Pick up the note from the front table.)2. Have a look around the room and then have a seat.Thank you for coming,Ms. Espinoza My isClass webpage
2 What are we going to talk about? Introduction. Who is Ms. Espinoza?The textbook we use and the topics covered in the class.Daily procedures. What can your child expect to happen daily?Frequently asked questions.Extra curricular math programs offered at CVMS.
3 What makes me qualified? Education:I have a Master of Education, Single Subject teaching credential, and B.S. in Mathematical Sciences all from U.C. Santa BarbaraI have a G.A.T.E. certificate and a C.L.A.D. certificateExperience:I taught at West High School in Torrance from and here at Carmel Valley since I have taught classes from Pre-Algebra through Calculus.
4 Personal Life I am married and I have an 11 year old step son. My husband and son arebaseball fanatics.My favorite thing about my family isthat they make me laugh.My brother is a Navy doctor.I love to workout, go to the beach, and eat fruit.
