        I would like to tell you a little bit about myself.  I was born and raised in El Paso.  I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso.  I have taught grades 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 12th (Social Studies and Spanish).

        I have been a teacher for many, many years and I love teaching!  Middle school is my favorite level.

        In S.S. 7th grade, we cover Texas History.  My students will learn organizational skills by maintaining proper inter-active notebooks, maps, timelines, notes, etc.  We create hands-on projects, write compositions, biographies, explore Career Cruising, create thematic maps, timelines, and other strategies that will help my students make the year a success.

        Grades: we will have at least 2 grades per week, extra credit is offered, we will complete notebook tests, thematic projects (in class), note-taking and class discussion participation. After the Spring Semester, my students will have an opportunity to earn 4 extra-credit grades by making a social studies project at home (optional, details … later).

        Working together for the welfare and success of our students is our goal.

        Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

                                                                                     Sincerely,

  Miss Muro  #887-3060
