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 20+ years. My time has been spent teaching a variety of grade levels and subjects. I graduated from Austin College. I returned to study in the Austin Teacher Program. While studying at Austin College, I met my wife, Laurie. We’ve been married for 24 years. We have been blessed with two incredible kids, Zach and Lani Grace. Zachary was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in February of 2017. He reached total remission in May. He gained his angel wings in November of 2017 when he was struck by a complication. He loved God, soccer, football, basketball, video technology, and his family and friends. Lani Grace is a junior in high school. She’s a competitive gymnast and dancer. She loves music and learning to play the piano and ukulele. She also likes to read and create all sorts of art. As a family, we love God and enjoy spending time on the beach or playing games with family and 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.
