Lesson Plans

As lesson plans are an important component to instruction, I will be collecting your weekly lesson plans every Friday. To be clear, you will turn in the lesson plan on Friday for the upcoming week. You can send them to me electronically or turn in a hard copy. We can use the lesson plans if you are out sick or need to be covered for an sst/iep. We will also share the plans with our new RS teacher, Jennifer, so she knows what the students are working on in their classrooms.

The Esperanza Vision and Mission

VISION

Students engage in rigorous, high quality, biliterate academics which prepare them for college and career. Esperanza students and families take responsibility for their learning which allows them to be academically strong in two languages. With a growth mindset, they are unique individuals, who critically think and are determined to succeed. Students show respect for themselves, others and the environment.

MISSION

Through PLC’s teacher are able to plan for mindful and purposeful instruction. Teachers collaborate to implement rigorous instruction, that meets the needs of all students. Teachers engage in peer observations to receive and give constructive feedback. Teachers use data to drive instruction and make clear plans for corrective instruction. We engage the family and community in quarterly meetings to review growth and set goals.
