Greetings Awesome Families!!
It is a pleasure to make your aquaintance! Welcome to the Awesome Aztec page! I am Sarah Devlin and I am currently teaching Kindergarten, Let the Adventure Begin!
I have a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Reading from California Baptist University. Go Lancers!
Orrenmaa Elementary School is soaring into the future! We are embracing a growth mindset with Ron Clark Academy strategies, Kagan Strategies, and we are now a full fledge AVID Elementary School.
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination
As an AVID Elementary we are working on WICOR strategies daily. What this means is, Writing to Learn, Inquiry (Asking questions, resarching answers from texts), Collaborating to learn/discussions, Organization (this is HUGE), and last BUT NEVER LEAST, Reading to Learn (This is also SUPER important). You will see and hear about being an AVID School A LOT this year :)
Students are targeting mastery of the Common Core State Standards.
Our school motto: Orrenmaa Owls are Soaring to Excellence!
We want our students to know, starting in Kindergarten, that they will meet their unlimited potential as long as they have a growth mindet, perseverance, and determination! My goal is to bring this out of each and every one of my students.
I live in Riverside with my husband and two awesome daughters. We love to do anything outdoors, like camping, biking, and going to the beach...and DISNEYLAND:)
I absolutely love reading, cats, and crochet...and Teaching!
Orrenmaa is a fun place to be and I am so glad you are here too.
