speakerWhat People Are Saying

Teaching is an art and skill that takes passion and hours of preparation. Through all the hours of preparation and planning the overall goal as a teacher is to push our students to succeed, move forward, and strive for excellence. The best parts of my lessons are the moments when students said “I get it now.” I feel the best thing about education is helping students explore and enjoy learning at the same time. -- Gerardo Chapa

Gerardo is intelligent, demonstrates mastery of his subject and understands how to make pedagogical decisions while making learning fun. -- University Supervisor

Mr. Chapa demonstrates knowledge in every area we explore in the third grade curriculum. He brings a wonder mix of mathematics, music, technology, and creativity to all lessons he plans. -- Cooperating Teacher
