Welcome to Mrs. Ybarra's 6th
Grade Home Page
Welcome to a
wonderful 6th grade year at Taylor School. It will be a very fun and
exciting year with many field trips, fun activities, and a lot to learn
to become productive citizens in todays society. We (parents, students
and I) will work hard together as a team, to master the California State
I will be
planning many lessons for whole groups, small groups, and individual
children. The most important thing I consider when planning instruction
is the specific needs of your child and the elements of a balanced
program. These elements include my reading aloud, shared reading,
guided reading at the appropriate instructional level, independent
reading to build fluency, and modeled, shared, and independent writing.
I will work
hard to prepare students for 7th grade. In order to prepare them, they
will be expected to be responsible, young adults. This includes turning
in their work on time, studying for tests, completing assigned
projects, and coming to school each and every day prepared and ready to
learn. Jr. High is very different from elementary school. I want them
to fit right in and feel comfortable with their surroundings.
I have three
sons, Anthony, Peter and Kameron, and my husband's name is Pete. I
received my bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies from Cal Poly, my
credential from National University in Los Angeles, and I just recently
received my master's degree and credential in Educational
Administration. I taught dance for fifteen years at Adkins Dance
Center, but recently retired to be at home with my boys. I love to
scrapbook and watch Lifetime!!
My door is
always open and I look forward to a wonderful school year. I welcome
parents to volunteer in the classroom...your help is always wanted and
appreciated! Whenever you have a question, comment or concern, please
do not hesitate to contact me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or I can also be reached in my classroom at 361-6298.
I will work hard to provide a solid education for my students and I expect them to work hard as well!!!
