Hello 5th grade families!

             My name is Mrs. Rae and I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. I have been involved in the education process as a parent, a volunteer, and a teacher for over 30 years. I'm an ASU graduate, a native Arizonan and my family has lived in the Gilbert area for over 60 years. I love spending time with family, traveling, reading, hiking and unsweet ice tea from Sonic!

          I'm excited to begin my 5th year as a 5th grade teacher at Cortina and will take on a new challenge this year, "Triad Teaching." I will share teaching responsibilities with Ms. Timco(ELA Writing and Social Studies) and Ms. Pierce (Math only).  I'll be teaching ELA Reding and Science to the 3 groups of students we share, throughout the day. 

          As we embark upon a new school year it is important to keep the lines of communication between school and home open. You're welcome to pop into the classroom anytime and if you ever have questions or concerns you can email me at  mary.rae@husd.org.

          Once again I’m excited about the 2019 – 2020 school year and I will strive to make it 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. Your support is and always will be essential in helping my students/ your children successfully, achieve the growth and learning goals set for them.


                                        Mrs. Rae
