Welcome to Kindergarten!
I want to welcome you to the Kindergarten Dual Language program at Rusk Elementary. I am Mrs. Chavez and I will be teaching the English component of the dual language program. In my class we learn to read, write, and speak in English. My partner Mrs. Colley will be your child's Spanish teacher.
Dual Language Program
Your child will be part of our Dual Language Program. This means your child will learn to read, write, and speak in English and Spanish. Half of the day your child will be in English class and the other half in Spanish class. Our goal is for your child to become successful in mastering English and Spanish at a Kindergarten level.
I graduated from UTEP in December 2011. I have been teaching at Rusk for 5 years. I look forward to having a wonderful year with you and your child.
