Claudia Facundo

My name is Claudia Facundo. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Education from UTA Arlington. I have been an educator for 7 years now. I chose this profession because I enjoy working with children. I strongly believe that children are our future and it brings me great joy to know that I am helping them reach their ultimate potential.

I like to create a safe and comfortable atmosphere in my classroom where students can be themselves. Because I understand that not all students learn the same I make sure that, I teach in a variety of ways in which I reach every student’s needs. It is important to me that every one of my students succeed in class and everywhere else, they may need to. I believe that teaching should not just be a “job” to do but a passion. I truly feel this way about it.

I am Peter Jay. I teach 1st grade, Dual Language (Spanish and English). This is my second career, having been a banker for many years, but I do have more than 20 years experience at H.V. Helbing. Being with youngsters is really exciting, they keep me young and give me new ideas.

I am trying to instill in my students a quest for knowledge, to be creative and most important be a good citizen and later contribute to our society as an adult.
