Hello. I am James Stuer or Mr. Stuer. I am honored and proud to be a part of the A+ Inspired Vision Intermediate School family here at Dallas, Texas.
I was born November 29, 1970 and raised in Fort Worth, TX. Though I am a son of the north central Texas area, I went to the University of Michigan to study. I have three kids and two grand kids. I call Cleburne home and enjoy the country life style.
I did my undergraduates studies in dual majors or two majors (Criminal Justice and Sociology). I further my education by completing a Masters of Science in Psychology in August 2009 from the University of Phoenix Online. While at the University of Michigan, I was a police officer for three years, working with the campus police department.
I worked in many positions that focused on kids. I was a pee-wee football coach for five seasons. Out of these five years, I was head coach and didn’t do so well (3-9). I used to be a Big Brother with Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Genesee County, Michigan and the Boys and Girls Club in Michigan and here in Texas. I see working with children to be a calling in my life and I never regretted choosing to become a teacher late in my career.
As a teacher, I prefer to work with bilingual students who are learning to speak English as a second language. My subject that I like to teach is SOCIAL STUDIES. I can get your student jumping out of their desk to read for me. I also do expect my students to be reading for 30 minutes a day for six days a week. This might sound like a lot, but the benefit in long run far out weights this weekly requirement that I have for your child. This will also translate into higher test scores at the district level and higher testing scores for the STAAR examines that is required by the state of Texas. Also, turning on the CLOSE CAPATION on your television with also increase their reading frequency as well. It is very important for your child to read more and enjoy what they are reading too. This means, finding something that interest them as a young reader.
School does start promptly at 8:00 in the morning. The district does set classroom expectations and behavior for all students. If your child is not following the expectations, then you will be notified through WhatAps, text message, or email. I do expect boys to be like gentlemen, that means no hitting girls and letting the ladies go first when appropriate, and answering adults as "Yes sir," or "No ma’am." Yes, I will also notify you if your child is doing great in class. So please, send a text message or a message to 682-970-5514 and my school email is email@example.com. In your message, let me know who you are, your child's name. This way, communication is on the spontaneous and up to the minute.
So thank you for allowing me to your child's teacher and most of all... Lets have a great 2018-2019 school year.
