About Miss Ortiz
My name is Gina Ortiz. I am very excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year. I am from California and grew up in the San Diego area. I graduated from California State University San Marcos in 2010 with a degree in liberal studies. I also received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from the same university. I have taught a 3/4 combo (third/fourth grade), 3rd grade language arts, and 1st grade math. I love being a teacher and watching my students grow as they learn throughout the year.
Our classroom is going to be a place where your child feels comfortable to take risks as they learn. I also feel it is important for students to be actively engaged in what they are learning. Our classroom will be a student-centered environment dedicated to the individual success of each student.
We are going to have an amazing year in First Grade!
First Grade Rocks!
