Welcome to 4th grade at La Vega H.P. Miles Intermediate! We are going to have a great year! My name is Nicole Cardenas. I am going to be teaching reading, writing, and social studies. My partner teacher is Beth Epperson. She teaches math and science.
I am a graduate of Texas Tech University. Guns Up! I have been working in education for nearly 20 years. This is my 4th year teaching 4th grade. Reading is a passion of mine and I am excited to share with my students the wonderful world of reading, and Texas history. I am currently pursing my Masters in Educational Leadership with Texas Tech, as I am always working to improve and further my knowledge and training.
We will use AVID strategies, Whole Brain Teaching, and Conscious Discipline in our classroom to promote and support a drive for being better for ourselves and others. I have high expectations for all students. I am looking forward to a great year!
