Ms. Mariana Hernandez-Barraza

Philosophy of Education: I believe that all students deserve an equal learning opportunity through differentiated instruction. Therefore, I focus on creating lessons incorporating different learning styles to meet the needs of every learner. Aside from differentiated instruction, I focus on building strong relationships based on trust and respect. This trust and respect lead to students being engaged in their learning and improving their academic and linguistic growth. My goal is to inspire and motivate my students to believe in their cognitive abilities, take risks, and reach their full potential.
