Life Long Learning
Napa Learns thank you for investing in teachers, when we grow in our knowledge we are empowered to grow the knowledge of our students. The experience that I have had in this program will translate into a more innovative experience for my students at Valley Oak. I also want to thank you again for providing the C-Stem experience for myself , Rafa, and our students. The data from my study shows that students at Valley Oak are showing growth in their math skills, increased engagement, and gaining important soft skill like collaboration, perseverance, and problem solving. Peg and Mario your continued support has pushed me to grow and develop my skills professionally and I am very grateful to you both for your continued support.
I am very thankful to have been a part of a Masters program that holds such a well stated mission statement; "The mission of the Graduate School of Education is to promote social justice by serving the community and larger society through the preparation and continuous support of professional educators to meet the needs of a constantly changing and diverse student population." I plan to work to uphold this statement as I continue my work with the students at Valley Oak Continuation High School. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to further my education and develop new innovative skills.
Dr. Redmond I want to thank you for your vision in working to create this Masters Program for Innovative Educators. I especially appreciate that this program was designed so that working teacher were able to manage both teaching and this program. You have made a difference in the lives of many teacher which then grows exponentially into the lives of many students. Thank you
I would like to thank Maria Cisneros for her continued support. Maria is very open to exploring innovative opportunities for our students. It is this support that made it possible for me to introduce the C-Stem curriculum to our Math 1 classes at Valley Oak.
I want to thank my cohort for all the love, support, and collaboration. You have all been so helpful and caring and I am very appreciative of each one of you. We all bring a different skill or insight to the table and you have all enhanced my learning experience. The saying "Together we are better" is truly evident with this wonderful group of innovative educators.
