Welcome to eight grade reading and social studies. My name is Jose G. Esparza. This is my 14th year of teaching and I can proudly say that I’ve had a very successful and rewarding career teaching different subjects in 5th, 6th, 7th, and now, 8th grade.
I have high expectations for each student, however I do recognize that all of us learn, create, and express ideas in different ways. Therefore, I teach from the prospective that all of us can learn, though not necessarily learn in the same way. For this reason, I implement a spirit of cooperative learning in my classes where students are challenged with rigorous engaging lessons that spark their higher order thinking skills. I encourage students to think and problem solve on their own as well as cooperatively with others.
My students are very important to me and I will make sure that they will all learn as much as possible and have a very successful and productive year. I have taken this opportunity to let you know a little about myself and invite you to contact me if I may be of any assistance to you in regards to your child.
Mr. Jose G. Esparza
