Honor Our Teachers would like to recognize and Honor Shirleen Rivers at Mesa Elementary!
Q and A with Mrs Rivers:
What do you love most about Teaching?
I love teaching in all aspects of education, but I love reading more. I love to see all my reading students engaged in the reading lessons and how they facilitate their own learning and setting reading goals for themselves. I love the fact that my reading groups can take charge of their own learning and seeing their faces in how they have mastered the reading skills when they see the final results.
Is there a group of students or a class period that you are particularly proud of and would like to Honor?
I am very proud of my 3rd and 4th grade reading intervention groups. They have made tremendous growth in their own classrooms and as well on test scores. They have been able to prove that they are willing to learn new reading strategies and apply it outside the classroom. I love their classroom discussions.
