The Third Nine Weeks Awards Assembly will take place this Friday at the times below. Please come out and recognize our students.
Mrs. Swenson’s Kindergarten student’s have been studying narrative and how-to writings this year. The students used their knowledge about shapes they have learned in math to write a how-to about drawing a cat or dog. The students used their narrative writing skills to write about their great adventures over Spring Break . Enjoy reading their great work!
TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Melissa Cota- Third Grade Teacher
Hi! My name is Mrs. Cota, I grew up in Irving, Texas, and I am the first person in my family to graduate from college. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2005. I didn't know I wanted to be a teacher until I became a parent. I knew right away that this was the career for me. I absolutely love to see the "light bulb moments" when children learn a new concept. This is my 11th year of teaching, and my 2nd year at Chavez. I absolutely love my Chavez family. I am married to an amazing man named Gary, and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Avery and Corinne (a 3rd grader at Chavez). We enjoy camping with family and friends. We own a camper; we also enjoy pulling the camper across the country. This summer we will be camping on the beach in Florida. I also enjoy baking and decorating cakes in my spare time.
