Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome your child to our Social Science class at Irene C. Hernandez Middle School! I am excited to be a part of your team as we work together to help the academic development of your child. This will be my 7th year as a Social Science teacher. Most of my experience has been with middle school students and I am committed to helping your child reach their full potential.
The common core standards guide all of our instruction and assessment of reading, writing, research, speaking. Common core standards can be viewed by visiting:

Students are responsible for bringing the following supplies to class every day:
Parental involvement is a key component in your child’s success in school. I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by monitoring their progress and attendance. This can be done by monitoring students’ progress through Parent Portal.
Technology never ceases to amaze me! I know life can get a bit hectic when kids start school and deadlines can become inundating. I've been introduced to a text reminder application, Remind, that will allow me to periodically send out classroom and school reminders via text message to help take the burden of remembering off of you. Rest assured that you will not receive advertisement texts and your phone number will remain private. You may choose to opt out at any time by messaging "stop" to the number provided. It is my hope that this will help strengthen the home-school connection. Attached you will find the directions as to how to sign up. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I look forward to a great year!
