Hello! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Lisa Cervantes and I am very excited to be your sixth grade teacher. As a student in my homeroom, I will teach ELA and Science. I team teach with Ms. Smith (Math) and Mr. Pinta (Social Studies). I look forward to working with you and your parents to make this a wonderful year full of learning, growth and lots of laughter. This is my fourth year teaching. Previously I taught two years in third grade and one year in sixth grade. I absolutely love teaching sixth grade. I strive to instill a love for learning in my students. Students should understand that they need to be active participants in their own learning. I expect all of my students to take responsibility for their actions and to show respect for others. I have very high expectations for students both academically and behaviorally.
When not at school, I live in Canton, Michigan with my wonderful daughter, Juliet who is in her first year at Grand Valley State University. I miss her tons! I enjoy spending time with my extended family, traveling, camping, kayaking, hiking, horse backriding, reading, watching Netflix and just about anything you can do outdoors.
The best way to contact me is through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will always respond back within 24 hours. My main form of communication for class and school happenings will be through the Remind App. Please make sure you sign up to receive important information.
