Welcome to Mrs. Ortiz's class. This is my 28th year of teaching and my experience encludes kindergarten through third grade. I have my BS degrees in Elementary education and have a second degree in Broadcast and Communications. I also have my Masters and Rank 1 degrees in Elementary Education.
I am married and have 2 children who attend the University of Kentucky. My father was in the Air Force so I have lived in several different states.
I love working with and for children. My philosophy is that all children will be successful and feel a sense of accomplishment. My goal is for my students to be independent thinkers, and mostly I want them to have fun so that they develop a genuine love for learning.
I love the phrase, "We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams."
