My name is Ms. Aranda, and I am teaching 6th Grade English. I am a Sam Houston State Bearkat, and this will be my very first year teaching. My goal is to maintain a fun, safe, and encouraging environment for my students.
I enjoy sewing, drawing, and hanging out with my friends / family in my free time. I love music and animals. I own a dog, macaw, and two sugar gliders.
I will be available after school for tutoring on Tuesday's and Thursday's.
I have a conference period Monday through Friday, 7:20-8am. If this time does not work for you, I will be happy to schedule a time outside of this period to chat. :)
Cell Phone Policy
All electronic devices are to be silenced and put away during the entirety of the class, unless directed otherwise.
Student's will be prompted one warning before I will hold the device until the end of the period.
Grading and Retest Policy
All students who receive lower than 70% on a test may retest for a higher grade. Once retested, students will receive the higher of the two grades, up to a 70%. Retests must be completed within 1 week of the original test date and students must attend a tutoring session in order to retest.
