Welcome to eight grade reading and social studies. My name is Jose G. Esparza. This is my 17th 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. It is an honor and pleasure to teach 8th grade Social Studies and Reading again this school year.
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. I understand that it will be a challenge to stay engaged and work cooperatively through distance learning but I am sure that my students are ready for it and will do their best.
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
