Mrs. Kate Guymon
Welcome to Humanities!
I began teaching 5th grade in Waxahachie, Texas and moved home to Tucson in 2016 to teach 8th grade Advanced Language Arts at La Cima. Although I have lived and worked in several states, I am a native Tucsonan and a graduate of Amphi High, so I was thrilled to come back to my hometown to teach kids from the schools and neighborhoods that I grew up in. I love to read, go hiking with my dog, and take road trips with my family. I love teaching and am so excited about teaching the REACH/ Humanities Class!
Core Educational Belief
I believe passionately that all children deserve free and equal access to high quality education in our community's public schools and I work hard to ensure that every child on my roster recieves prescisely that. I believe in my students. I believe in their families and in the value of thier personal experiences. I believe in thier intelligence and creativity, and in their dedication to their own education. And as a first generation college graduate myself, I believe fully in my student's ability to overcome adversity and experience true success.
In my class, students will be nurtured as well as challeneged. We will employ AVID strategies, Socractic exploration, and student-driven, project based learning to enhance and deepen our understanding of the subject.
I encourage you to explore my website for more information about our classes. You will find important dates, course expectations, and technology resources.
