Welcome to Mrs. Cabrera's Classroom!
ALL students have Think Through Math Log in AND password Taped to the inside of their binder :)
I am SO excited to be teaching 4th grade Math and Science this year at Hailey! We are going to have a GREAT year and accomplish SO much this year!
This is my 10th year teaching. I was a teacher for 7 years in Chicago, Illinois. I began my career as a Reading Specialist and then moved to teaching ALL of the subjects in grades K-8 during my time in Chicago. I also had the amazing opportunity to work with Chicago Lesson Study Alliance to better my Math instruction using International Math practices as well as Japanese Math practices. I even presented at International Math conferences which was fun but VERY nervewracking!
My family and I moved to the great state of Texas where I have continued teaching, learning, and growing. I am thrilled to be here at Hailey and look forward to knowing all of my students and families as we work and grow together this year in 4th grade.

Special Announcement: Parents please talk with your students at home about the school RULE stating that Pokemon cards ARE NOT allowed at school. These Pokemon cards are causing problems with "trading" and "stealing" and have become a distraction to our class. If any Pokemon cards are seen at school, they will be confiscated by the teacher and held until the last day of school in June. Thank you for your support with this!
