Welcome to Ms. Ibanez's teacher page!
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Ibanez!
I am so excited to be working with third grade this year. I look forward to sharing my love of books with the students. One of my favorite authors is Mo Willems, but I have so many other books and authors that I love to read! I am an avid baker, on the weekends you can catch me baking muffins, or cookies. I also have a passion for cooking. Some of my other interests include, yoga, hiking, going for bike rides, listening to music, and laying by the pool or beach. I have two younger brothers, one who is in college, and the other who is finishing high school. I have a pet bunny whose name is Lou Lou, who I have had for 2 years.
I spent a year in college, living in Florence, Italy. One of the things I love to do is travel the world. Hence, our theme of "World Explorers." This year we will explore our reading styles, our math talents, and take a closer look at the countries, China, United States, Brazil and Kenya. One of my goals this year, is to teach students to think critically and develop a sense of Global Awareness and most importantly, a sense of community.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns via a note in the students' Homework Folder or via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow me 24-48 hours to respond as I am not always able to check my email until the end of the day.
I look forward to meeting you and working with your families this year!
