Welcome to North Middle School. My name is Sarah Ortiz. I am a 6th grade special education teacher. I have been working in the special education field for 16 years. This year I teach one section of Discovery and one section of Study Smart. You also will see me co-teaching or providing instructional support in a variety of other classrooms throughout the day. My primary goal is to help my students have a successful 6th grade year.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and experiencing life through the eyes of my young children. When I am not at North Middle School it is likely that I can be found dancing, watching dance or teaching dance.
Here are some of my favorite things:
*Old movies from the 1930s and 1940s
*Words--Defenestrate is my favorite word. It means to throw a person or thing out of a window. I have never actually needed to use this word. I just love that it exists.
I look forward to getting to know you and your favorite things. Helping you is what I am here for. Thank you for this opportunity.
