A Peek at the Week

Mrs. Gutierrez's second grade weekly news letter.

Who is Mrs. Gutierrez

Hello my name is Mrs. Ayla Gutierrez, but your wonderful children usually call me Mrs. G. I graduated from the University of Houston with a specialization in bilingual education. I have been teaching here in CARE ISD for two years now. I believe my super power is that I am a very passionate person, especially when it comes to helping a child. I never let any kind of difficulty ever get in my way of achieving my task in hand. I like being a bilingual teacher because I want students to be true to who they are and be proud of it. I like using their culture to connect with them and help them become the best person they can be.
