Miss Jo Ann L. Raths

I became a teacher because I love the learning and teaching process.  My favorite moment that I LIVE for is the "light bulb" moment when a student fully understands a concept and they "get it".  My classroom environment is structured and disciplined for student's calm, safety, and learning. 

I am available to all my students and parents by phone, email, Remind, and Google Classroom message. Due to Remind's limits for number of accounts; I have created two accounts - one for parents and one for students.  Please do not sign up for both. 

For relaxation and inspiration, I like to watch TV, read books, and spend time with family and friends.  I am a graduate of Southwest High School, San Antonio, TX and a graduate of The University of the Incarnate Word.  I have two bachelor degrees:  History and Interdisciplary Education (middle school education).  I am certified to teach grades 1-8; history for grades 6-8.  The 2020-2021 school year is my 22nd year of teaching and my 16th year at Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School.  This school year I am teaching 7th grade Texas History and Debate.
