Mrs. Susan Navarrette
8th Grade Math and PreAP Algebra 1 Teacher
WELCOME parents and students! I am very excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year at Dr. Hornedo Middle School. This year I will be teaching 8th grade math and PreAP Algebra 1.
This is my 22nd year in education. I started in YISD at Eastwood Middle. After seven years there, I wanted to be closer to home, as my children were getting older. This will be my 15th year at Hornedo. As my former students will attest, I love teaching math (and get a little carried away at times). My desire to become a middle school math teacher dates back to my days in Mr. Larry Hawkins' class at Zia Junior High in Las Cruces. He was my inspiration! It was my dream to become a math teacher. Now it is my job to help my students be inspired to achieve their dreams.
My husband, Oscar, is a technology teacher at Wiggs Middle School. He and I have two boys who we love spending time with. Michael, 22, is studying journalism at our alma mater, NMSU. Matthew, 16, is a junior at Franklin. Yes...we're NMSU Aggies, but I'm sure we can all still get along. :)
I'm here to help students and I am open to any helpful suggestions. I would say the quickest way to reach me is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
