About Me

Hello everyone! My name is Pedro Venegas and I am very glad to be a part of CARE I.S.D. I am new to the district, however I am looking forward to making new acquaintances and sharing past experiences. I was born and raised in Cleveland, a small town about an hour north of Houston. I have always been passionate about teaching. I love teaching all subjects but my preferred subject is science. I love science in particular because it is so engaging and interactive; it helps students become active learners. My target grade level is 4th grade, because at this grade level children are more independent than in lower grade levels and also they are more conscience of themselves at this stage.

Class Project

This month in honor of St. Patricks Day our class we will be doing a project over the Irish culture. So each student will do research about Ireland and its customes along with a homemade Irish Clover, these items are to be attached to a carboard poster and brought to class. We encourage the help of parents with this project. I can not wait to see all of the students finished work; I know they will be amazing!
