4th Grade: Mrs. Vargas
Welcome to fourth grade! Union School District has been a wonderful place for me to explore many interests. I recently earned a Master's degree in Instructional Science and Technology - yes, I do love exploring new ways to inspire my students using technology. There are a lot of tools to choose from and we will try as many that are relevant.
I began my teaching career by working with children identified as gifted in the district's Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) pull-out program. I also have experience as a fourth, fifth, and sixth grade teacher. Lietz was the first school to begin the STEAM program and as the teacher, I spent three years creating lessons and helping the district design the curriculum. I am looking forward to returning to a fourth grade classroom; it will be a delightful 23rd year of teaching.
