Good Bye and Hello

  • The Social Studies Department would like to say goodbye to Cynthia Hernandez and thank her for all of her hard work and dedication to the students and teachers of San Antonio ISD! Cynthia retired on August 31st and we will definitely miss her!

We are excited to have them join our team and they will be meeting you soon as we visit our campuses and classrooms!

Literacy! Learning! Action!

  • Secondary Social Studies Teachers from all over San Antonio ISD gathered together at Fox Tech last week to learn what it means to Be On Stage Every Day! Teachers experienced seven different lessons designed to immerse them into what student-centered learning should look, sound, and feel like. They also discovered how literacy can be using within the classroom on a daily basis and how cooperative learning helps students become investigators.
  • Journey over to the TLC page to find all of the lessons, movie posters, and pictures of the model classroom!
