Welcome to Plummer Elementary! My name is Mrs. Ortiz and I teach 1st Grade here at Plummer. I look forward to a wonderful year working with our first graders as they learn to become more independent learners. They will be able to blend sounds to read and write words, become more fluent readers, write complete sentences that stay on topic, add and subtract to 20, count and write numbers to 120, and solve word problems that involve addition and subtraction and explain their reasoning.
I enjoyed studying Sociology at UCLA. I have been teaching for 17 years in LAUSD. I love teaching because I enjoy helping my students grow and learn each day to become the leaders of tomorrow.
