Mr.Cruz's Class Website

Welcome to 6th grade! I know that we are going to have a great and fun year together. My name is Mr. Cruz. I teach Science, English Language Arts and also Social Studies. I am extremely excited to explore the new My World interactive series as well as the Wonders and HMH dimensions series this year. We will be utilizing the brand new Smart Boards in class. Students will also be able to access the online versions of all three texts. We will also be using online resources such as IXL and Kahoot.
Now a little about myself... I received my Bachelor's degree from Moravian College in May of 2017. I am a first-generation American this is important to me because I understand the struggle that comes with that title. I was the first male in my family to graduate from high school and the first person in my family to graduate from college. Throughout my early school years, I struggled to learn.  I had wonderful teachers who had an interest in me and showed me some studying techniques and good learning habits. I worked hard and now I want to use some of the techniques taught to me to help children learn and enjoy learning like I learned to do myself. I also coach Football, Wrestling, and Lacrosse.
