Ornelas, Christina

chalkboard       Welcome to 5C, Mrs. Ornelas's Class

My name is Mrs. Ornelas.  I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso receiving a Bachelor's of Science in Education.  I have been in the education field for 27 years.  I have taught grades 4th,5th and 6th though out my 27 years. 

                                    Class Expectations

I am excited because this year we will be using Thematic Units during our Language Arts core time. We will be going to the library every other Monday in order for students to check-out books to read for enjoyment, then take AR tests for comprehension.  We also have several new Math Teks that we will tackle using engaging activities that will help students understand the new concepts (readiness standards) and review old concepts (supporting standards).  Science Labs will take place Mondays and Wednesdays with hands on experiences, so as to understand the steps of Science experimentation while at the same time presenting 5th grade science concepts.

My motto is "My job is to educate your child".  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through e-mail at cxornela@episd.org, or at school between 1:30 - 2:15 at 774-4020.
