Welcome to 5th Grade!Mr. Alvarez's Awesome Allstars
Send me an email: Follow us on:I am blessed to teach at the absolute BEST elementary school anywhere! 5th grade is a year full of challenges, growth, and celebrations. We are learning to take risks, stretch ourselves, and work to become excellent in all we do. My goal is to provide a fun atmosphere where taking risks, working hard, and being a part of something bigger are encouraged and fostered.
In order to ensure your child’s success, students are expected to follow the 3 R’s (R³).
1.) Be Respectful of yourself, others, our school, and our tools;
2.) Be Responsible for your choices, your work, and your things; and
3.) Be Ready to learn.I've taught for a total of 24 years. My time has been spent teaching a variety of grade levels and subjects. Of those, eight years have been at the 5th-grade level, including three of which were teaching 5th grade GT math. I graduated from Austin College with a BA in Business Administration and my Masters in Education. While studying at Austin College I met my wife, Laurie. We’ve been married for 22 years. God blessed us with two incredible kids, Zachary and Lani Grace. As a family, we love God, enjoy Ranger games, playing games, and spending time on the beach or at Beavers Bend with friends.I have been blessed to work with and learn from some of the absolute best educators anywhere. In 1999 I was honored to receive the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year award while teaching at Washington Elementary School in Sherman. I love my job and work hard to ensure each child I work with enjoys the time they spend in my classroom and is as successful as they possibly can be.
