Sallie Humble Tigers
Welcome to a wonderful year in 3rd and 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Kimberly Garza and I will be your child's Special Education Inclusion teacher this school year. This is my twelfth year teaching, and third year at this school. I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve the children of Sallie Humble Elementary. My personal goal this year is to make learning both fun and enjoyable for my students, while providing many opportunities for hands-on experience and "real world" application of skills. I am looking forward to meeting each of you and working closely to provide the best education possible for your child!

Please feel free to contact me either by e-mail, by written note, or by phone.

Things to remember:
1. We are working on a 9 weeks reporting system now. So, you will only see 4 report cards coming home this year! Please speak with your child about the importance of trying to do their best work at all times.

2. We send home signed papers every Wednesday in their Tiger Folders. Please take the time to go over every test with your child. Discuss the mistakes that were made, and talk about how not to make the same mistakes again. Encourage them to excel!

3. Your child has 9 weeks to meet their Accelerated Reader goal. They must score a minimum average of 90% and meet their individual points goal each 9 weeks. They must check out, read, and test on books which are on their reading level. Students should be reading every night. Please take the time to read with them and ask them questions about their books as often as possible.

4. All students at Sallie Humble were given planners at the beginning of the year which should stay inside of their binders.  Please check inside them nightly for homework assignments. Teachers also send home study guides weekly, so make sure you go over these as often as possible throughout the week. We want your child to be successful!
