Mr. Rodrigo

Hi parents, step-parents and family members!
Welcome to my teacher page and a new school year! I hope that your child's experience and your experience is a positive and good one this year! Together we can all make the year as best as possible!
This will be my 22nd year teaching at Birches Elementary School. I taught 2nd grade for 9 years and 4th grade for 9 years before coming to the Basic Skills MATH Department. I have my K-5 teaching certification, as well as my Master's Degree in School Psychology, Certification in School Supervision, and Certification in Middle School Math. I pride myself in continuously learning about the field of teaching and school supervision, and using the learning to better help your child.
My teaching philosophy centers on creating an environment where the children feel safe, happy, and bully-free. I believe by creating this type of atmosphere all children are able to learn more, learn faster, and retain the learning easier. I have high expectations of all my students and I push them to new levels, beyond where even they see themselves as capable of achieving, because I know with the right guidance and help all students can go as far as their minds want to go!
