I am Mrs. Laura G. Schroeder, and I am your child’s homeroom teacher. I have a BA in Broadcasting from UTEP, a Teachers Certification grade levels 1-8 from UTEP, I have a Specialty Certification in English, and I have ESL (English is a Second Language) Certification. I have been at Rosa Guerrero since it opened. I have high expectations for your child, and I will be doing all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. I will be expecting all work assigned to be completed, whether it is classwork or any other type of work. Some children will get their work done in class and some will not. If your child does not complete an assignment in class, he or she will be required to complete it at home. You will find that I do not give homework for TWO basic reasons.
*I like to see the progress your child is making in class.
*My text books are a class set, and may not go home.
Spelling Tests will be every Friday unless otherwise notified, and after the spelling test your child will receive the new list for the next week. I will also require that your child participate in our RIAFA (READING IS A FAMILY AFFAIR) program. This is a great program and very beneficial. Each child will be required to read for 10 or more minutes for at least twenty days out of each month. I will be giving your child a calendar each month to mark the days they have read. This will begin in September 2016. Please understand I am very strict, however I am fair. My goal this year is to see that your child gains strengths in all areas so that he/she will be successful in anything they wish to accomplish. I would like to encourage you as parents to please read with your child as much as you can, for reading is the key to success.
PLEASE SIGN HOMEWORK AGENDAS DAILY
PLEASE LOOK FOR GRADED WORK WHICH WILL GO HOME ON FRIDAYS
HIGHLIGHTERS AND RED PENS ARE REQUIRED!
*****NOTE: PLEASE LABEL ALL SUPPLIES SENT TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. My conference time is from 9:45 to 10:30, and the school phone number is 231-2680. Thank you and I look forward to a very successful year.
Mrs. Laura G. Schroeder
