Mrs. Cortez is my favorite teacher because..

After walking on campus this morning it only took me a minute to find 3 students who stated Mrs. Cortez was their favorite teacher. Below are a few quotes from those kids.


"She use projects in class so that we have fun while learning."

"We take tests every Friday so that we know if we are understanding what she is teaching. The tests are on Canvas so we get the results back right away."

"She allows us to discuss the topics in groups and she makes learning about cultures interesting."
