March 18 - Board Workshop
Seguin ISD's third Teacher Spotlight feature showcases Maegan Medrano, third grade teacher at Koennecke Elementary School.
1. Describe your teaching career at Seguin ISD.
I started my dream job teaching third grade math at Koennecke Elementary in January of 2016. Since then, I have been teaching third grade students to fall in love with math just as I have through engaging activities, catchy songs, and challenging them with logical thinking.
2. How do you instill rigor and relevance in your classroom?
I instill rigor and relevance in my classroom by ingraining the habit of looking for understanding in all math problems. My students are not just satisfied with giving a simple answer, they justify their answers using academic vocabulary, hands on approaches, and logical reasoning.
3. As an educator, you cultivate, inspire and empower. What does this mean to you?
As an educator, I have a passion for inspiring and empowering my students to be the best they can be by teaching them to set goals, be responsible for their future, and reflect on their learning. Our kids need teachers who see their potential and empower them to follow their dreams. I believe we are one of the most important people who should prepare and encourage students to become problem solvers and creative thinkers. In doing so, we should create a student centered classroom where kids have the opportunity to voice their point of views and lead rigorous discussions.
Thanks for all you do at Koennecke, Maegan! #MatadorFamily
Seguin ISD Superintendent Dr. Matthew Gutierrez is hosting a series of meetings to help share information on the May 4 bond election.
He is inviting the community to learn more about the bond program through two community forums scheduled for Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 28. Both meetings are 7:30-8:30 a.m. at Seguin ISD District Office located at 1221 E. Kingsbury St. Spanish translation will be available.
“My goal with the community forums is to create on opportunity for stakeholders to stop by on their way to work, after dropping their children off at school or perhaps after they have eaten breakfast at their favorite restaurant. We will have information on how the bond projects were designed and prioritized, the long range facility plan, potential tax implications and voter information. Naturally, we will be glad to answer any questions,” Gutierrez said.
Interested community members may come and go during the community forums.
Another event, Gutierrez’s biannual State of the District presentation, will also focus on the bond election.
“I am looking forward to hosting our State of the District at Briesemeister Middle School on Monday, April 15 at 6:30 p.m. This event is open to the entire Seguin ISD community and serves as another opportunity for our stakeholders to learn more about the bond program,” he said.
In addition to the community forums and State of the District, Seguin ISD staff is coordinating bond presentations at its campuses, plus civic and community organizations in Seguin.
“I appreciate our Seguin area clubs and organizations for scheduling bond presentations in the coming weeks and we are hopeful to schedule more. It is imperative that all eligible voters make their voice heard during early voting and election day,” he said.
Businesses and organizations interested in scheduling an information-based bond presentation may call (830) 401-8609. For information on the Seguin ISD bond election, visit https://bit.ly/2UTfnuQ.
