Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

             My name is Mrs. Rae and I would like to welcome you to an exciting new year of learning! I have been involved in the education process as a parent, a volunteer, and a teacher for over 30 years. This is my 4th year at Cortina and I am thrilled to be a part of the 5th grade teaching team.

    My goal as a teacher is to make a positive difference in students’ lives and to help them develop skills that will enable them to be successful in all that they do. I believe that together students, parents/guardians, and educators can help facilitate learning and contribute to building a learning environment that allows and encourages all students to learn, grow, and succeed.

    As we embark upon a new school year it is important to keep the lines of communication between school and home open. Feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns you may have. I can be contacted at mary.rae@husd.org.

    Once again I’m hoping to make the 2018 – 2019 school year a positive and productive experience for the students entrusted to my care. I want to thank you, ahead of time, for your support in this area. That support will be essential in helping us to, successfully, achieve our academic goals.
