In Ms. Cortez's own words...


I teach because it is all I have wanted to do since I was five years old. It is my dream job because I feel I make a difference in kids’ lives. I have had some great teachers and I feel compelled to follow in their footsteps in my own classes. Most importantly, I teach because of my commitment to advancing students’ quality of thinking, affecting changes in students’ economic status and sustaining my moral obligation to educational equity for all children.
