Welcome to 5th grade at Rogers Middle School! I am Mireya Lewis. I am a 5th grade Science and Social Studies teacher at Rogers Middle School. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis on Education from the University of Houston Central Campus. I earned my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Texas Southern University. I am both ESL and GT certified. I have been a certified teacher for 18 years, and I am excited about continuing my career at Pearland ISD! My interests include all things music, cultural studies, science as well as research. I believe that- when teachers, parents, students, and administrators work together- ALL students can be successful in their attempts to grow intellectually! I look forward to providing engaging activities, and to facilitating the learning of all my students this school year.
Ms. Lewis' Science and Social Studies Class
1. Prompt and Regular Attendance
2. Full Class Participation
3. Complete Online and Physical Classwork
4. Good Citizenship
Each week, Students will receive grades as follows:
Social Studies- 2
Unit Assessments- Bi-weekly
To receive full credit on assignments/exams, students must: (1) Explain what is happening in the scenario; (2) pinpoint (circle, highlight, or underline) the most important information in the scenario; (3) submit notes and/or drawings to illustrate the process of incorrect answer choice elimination; and (4) justify their accurate final answer choice(s). I refer to this process as "showing one's work". Each of these requirements are worth 20% of the assignment grade, equaling to 100%/A+! Failure to follow these requirements may result in lower scores. An example of these expectations will be posted in Canvas, and I will model these expectations in class as well!
