Mrs. Laura Macias
My mission is to inspire students to love learning and to encourage them in maintaining a growth mindset. My goal is for students to be independent and confident learners. Their academic growth is important to me as well as their development in strong social skills and character. Having a warm, welcoming, and fun environment is crucial for students to feel secure and motivated to learn. Every student is a unique individual with strengths and my goal is for students to not only succeed as individuals, but also for them to be productive collaborators among each other.
My vision is for students to excel in every aspect and to feel fully equipped for the next grade. My goal is for students to develop and strengthen valuable and relevant skills and for them to enjoy and to take charge of their learning.
