Welcome to an exciting 2018-2019 school year, in our brand new TCH Computers Science Class!!!!
My name is Gloria Ray; I was born in Colombia, South America. I have lived in the United States for 18 years, and have been teaching at Heights Elementary for twelve years, eleven of which were teaching Spanish.
Since I came to the United States, I have been working with children, initially on Sanibel Island (in a private institution), and later at Orange River Elementary, also in Lee county.
In 2009, I was awarded for being "The 2008-2009 Outstanding Subject Area Teacher of World Language, Elementary Level". I am very proud of it!
Every day, I make sure that my students will enjoy learning, with the activities I plan for them. In this new challenge, I am preparing activities not only oriented to Science, but also to Technology. Students are learning to use Google Classroom (2n grade and up), through readings, videos, simulations, vocabulary, slideshows, tests and games. with the youngers, I am working on the basic skills for computer management, as well as in science-related instruction.
I am very happy witnessing how they enjoy learning in a more practical way. I assist them in all their needs.
It is a joy having you children in my class! They inspire me to work hard every day; at the same time, they challenge me to achieve my goals and improve myself as a teacher and as a human being.
