Mrs. Cailley Aguirre
Hello all! Welcome to my classroom webpage, my name is Mrs. Aguirre, and this is my third year teaching at Challenger.
I graduated from UWB with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Special Education. When I was in college I decided to change my major from Child and Family Psychology to Education because of my experience volunteering in classrooms. I realized how important elementary teachers are to kids and how some of my teachers, from Mr. Copeland to Mrs. Ronning, shaped my experience in school in such a positive way. I hope to be that influential of teacher to my students. I have a passion for education and look forward to getting to know both you and your kiddo as we work to explore various subjects.
Hobbies/ Interests: I enjoy spending time outside with my family, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, gardening, and reading. Another love of mine is food- I enjoy baking, cooking and eating- I would definitely call myself a foodie. I also love music and singing.
Teaching philosophy: My teaching philosophy is that all students can succeed and make growth academically, socially and emotionally. I believe that we can work as a community to bring educated, compassionate, kind future leaders to fruition. I believe that all students are capable, unique, and special. Your student can do anything they set their mind to with great perseverance, effort, courage and a positive mindset.

So far I have sent home log in information for SplashLearn.com (math games online for free), razkids.com (reading online for free), and getepic.com (a free reading website). They should also know how to log into PebbleGo from prior school years.
Please look at the Family Resource page for extra worksheets, links to websites, and links to educational games.
Your students growth in any aspect requires practice, and reading improvement takes just that! You can aid their growth by making sure they read to you, with you, or to another fluent reader daily for 20+ minutes. They can also read alone, but reading with/to a more experienced reader helps them access vocabulary growth as you can explain and assist them as necessary when they come across unfamiliar words, reading with your child is also a great boost for growing an even deeper connection.
