Mr. Cary B.Todd
Welcome to Mr. Todd's classroom! I began my teaching career in 2004. I am proud to be associated with the wonderful students, staff, and administration of La Cima Middle School. I am a proponent of social justice, and helping students overcome educational and emotional adversity is my passion. I have an intimate interest in the success of my students as a member of our diverse and dynamic community. I also have coached baseball, softball, and soccer.
Defining Moment in Education
My first teaching assignment was at a small rural high school in a remote part of the Navajo Nation. Since that time, I have always felt a connection to students and communities that have been traditionally underserved and underrepresented politically.
Core Educational Beliefs
All students are capable of learning regardless of their current academic placement, socioeconomic status, ethnic background, or the language they speak at home. My job as an educator is to reach as many students as possible by utilizing research-based teaching techniques that appeal to the learning styles of a diverse population of students.
