Mrs. Maestes

What I enjoy most about my job is the impact that I make on my students.  I enjoy helping them get a good start.  An important tool that helps me with my job is that I am bilingual.  This helps with vocabulary skills in both English and Spanish.  This enables me to help 100% of the students.  I work with all the students in 15 minute group rotations.  While in my groups I teach letter names, letter sounds, and letter formation.  There is a lot of writing and reading.  

I teach the three rules:

1. Capitol at the beginning of the sentence.

2. Two finger spaces after every word.

3. The correct punctuation at the end of a sentence. 

It has worked for 25 years, lets continue to follow the Declo Way.
