Maria Galvan

I am Maria D. Galvan and I have  been teaching since 2006 from when I was in Mexico. I graduated from Universidad Juarez Autonoma de Tabasco with a bachelors degree in Business and later moved to the US for better opportunities. I enjoy teaching because I get the opportunity to better prepare the students for the outside world. I strongly believe that students should have equal opportunities regardless of background.

Outside of school, I am married and have 3 children. I also have 7 outdoor cats that like to wander around the neighborhood. I enjoy watching movies and crafts. My favorite drinks include bubble tea and coffee

Mrs. Holley Montes

Here is a little about me. I graduated from UTA in 2005. This is my ninth year to teach and my fourth year with FWISD as a kindergarten teacher which I love very much. I have a 30 yrs. old daughter, Bailey and two grandbabies. One is in 5th grade (a boy) and the other in Pre-k (a girl). I have a son, E.J. whose serves in the Army and he and his wife have my two grandsons. One is 2 yrs. old and the other 1 yr. old. So, I am very blessed and proud of my children.

As a teacher, I enjoy teaching all students who are from different cultures and different learning levels.  All subjects are very important to the students because it explains how the world works around them. All students come with different knowledge and experiences. It is up to the teacher to find what knowledge the student has and help students add new knowledge. A teacher can build prior knowledge by using strategies that yield higher order thinking to better comprehend and have “ah-ha” moments.

Students must feel welcomed and safe and the learning environment is inviting with positive guidance. I believe that students should not be labeled by previous teachers or in the classroom. As a teacher, students learn to be respectful. I am very supportive, caring, nurturing, and challenge students to reach their potential.

Lastly, I enjoy teaching students because they bring out the best in me. I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.
