Hello and welcome to a new school year!  My name is Mrs. Myriam Rangel and I am very excited to have the opportunity to share with you and your child in his/her 5th Grade experience.  Because I will be getting to know your child very well this year, I wanted to share with you a few things about myself, both personally and professionally.

This will be my 5th year of teaching and my 7th year at John H. Shary Elementary, where I started as a pre-K aide. I received my B.S. in biology from The University of Texas Pan American and my M.B.A. from The University of Phoenix.

My goal as a teacher is to motivate and encourage your child to reach his/her highest abilities.  I teach with a hands-on approach.  I believe if a child hears he will forget, if a child sees he will remember, and if a child does, he will understand.  I believe that every child CAN do it, and I encourage and build them up to be the best they can. I will respect and give your child my full understanding, and in return, I expect the same from your child.

I am looking forward to an exciting 2020 - 2021 school year.  I will do my best to make you feel a part of your child's 5th Grade experience by keeping you informed weekly on what is going on in our classroom.  Please feel free to call me at school, or email me if questions or concerns arise. You are the most important person in your child's life, and by working together, we can ensure that your child's 5th Grade experience will be filled with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!
