“Read with your kids, I think that’s the best advice you can give any parent. Work on your math facts. All of those simple things that our parents always did with us. Those are still things we can work with our children.
I always tell my students, it’s all about hard-work. They have to work hard. They have to believe in themselves and anything is possible.
Well, if I was going to describe my teaching philosophy, it be one of hard work. We always talk about the American dream. I feel that we have a different dream these days, it’s one of hard-work and effort. I truly think, that if kids work hard they can succeed.
They say I’m pretty funny, so I try to have fun with it. We really work well together. My name is Francisco Flores, I teach 5th grade at Mt. Vernon Elementary and I am the Teacher of The Month.”
