1 Welcome to Fifth Grade Back to School Night 2015!

2 Who am I? I earned my Bachelors Degree in History from Azusa Pacific, Masters Degree in History from California State University Fullerton, a Multiple Subject teaching credential from Azusa Pacific and this year, I will be earning my Masters in Education with an emphasis on digital teaching and learning. This is my sixth year in primary education.

3 Who am I? Part II I am engaged to the beautiful Yesenia Guzman (also an APU alum and fellow teacher). I enjoy meeting famous people including: President Carter, Madeline Albright, William Shatner (see wall behind my desk). I have traveled extensively.

4 Curriculum Students will be challenged in all subjects through a professional and current curriculum. The curriculum will include Saxon Math, Open Court Reading, and Scott Foresman Science. We will also be reading a number of novels (TBA)

5 What will we be doing in class? We will be learning the core subjects such as Math, Science, English and Bible. We will also be learning about how to read, write and present ideas in an organized structure. Finally, and most importantly, students will learn life lessons as they relate to the Bible and other topics. Students will not only learn the information, but, learn the “why” and the “how.”

6 Grading The grading scale is an A-F scale (see student handbook for details). Students will be graded on not only if they answered correctly on a problem, but, if they truly put forth effort. For larger projects a rubric will be handed out to each student.

7 Homework and Late Work Homework will be given nightly in typically no more than 2 subjects (e.g. Math and History, etc.). This does not count long term assignments or projects. No late work will be accepted. Any late work will receive a ‘0’ in the grade book.
