Welcome to 5th Grade Reading
Hi! My name is Alicia Najera and I am excited about the 2014-2015 school year. This is my second year as a teacher at Burleson Elementary. My job, as an educator, is to create an atmosphere that promotes learning. I am a reading teacher because I have a passion for reading as well as guiding students through the learning process. One of the best ways to foster learning is to demonstrate those feelings to my students. I encourage reading and learning by creating a relaxed environment for students, stimulating conversation about concepts being presented and organizing material in a way that makes it easiest to understand. I believe that respect for my students is one of the most important things I can show - not only to encourage their openness to the material I am presenting, but also to inspire them to respect each other and all others. One of the most important concepts I hope to impart to students is that learning is a process that never ends.
I started my elementary education in Cd. Juarez, and started my journey with EPISD in the 5th grade. I attended Zach White Elementary, Lincoln Middle, and graduated from Franklin High School in 2004. I then attended UTEP and earned a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2012. I am the first in my family to earn a college degree.
