Mrs. Rodriguez

I truly enjoy the challenges that come in working with students that are striving to graduation with their cohort. I strive to apply various pedagogical teaching methods to develop the efficacy of each student. My focus is in English 1 course work, English PreAP, English 1 EOC Prep, Writing Strategies, and English 11/9th. I speak Spanish for those parents who prefer to converse in Spanish with regards to student concerns. More often than not, I want to meet the student where they are and ask of them to rise to the next level of critical thinking.
