Welcome to Tom Lea Elementary! I am Mrs. Minerva Morales. Mrs. Leticia Chavez and myself will be team teaching this school year. I will be the Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies teacher for 3A and 3E students. Math, Science and Enrichment will be taught by Mrs. Chavez.
would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a proud
native El Pasoan, a product of EPISD having attended Rusk Elementary,
Bassett Middle School and Austin High School. I am a UTEP graduate with a
bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, Early Childhood and a
Minor in Reading. This will be my 23rd year teaching. I have had the
opportunity to teach at several schools in different capacities; various
grade levels, at risk coordinator and student activities director.
Being a third grade teacher has taken my teaching career full circle. I
welcome all 3rd grade teaching challenges and to experience seeing
firsthand the phenomenal progress my students will make throughout the
2016-2017 school year.
Teaching at Tom Lea
Elementary has been a rewarding experience. I have seen firsthand how
enthusiastic students are about attending school and learning. The
parents in the school community have made an everlasting impression;
their support of their child's education is instrumental for my
student's success in school. It's great to see so many parents involved in their child's education. "I believe that behind every successful student is a caring parent."
I look forward to working with you and your child. I have planned a wide variety of learning activities
that will enhance our standard third grade curriculum as well as GT.
Differentiated teaching occurs daily in order to meet each of my
student's needs. Please be assured
that I will do my best that the time spent in my classroom is a safe,
positive experience conducive of quality learning for all students.
Together we will help your child develop academically and socially so
they will have a healthy, positive outlook towards school. Exciting
times are ahead!
