Kristy Guerrero, a second-grade teacher at Canalino Elementary School, was honored by the Tri-county GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Council recently for her commitment to rigorous education for all students.
“Kristy Guerrero is committed to high-quality instruction for all subjects, but especially in mathematics,” said Carpinteria Unified School District GATE Coordinator, Crystal Marshall, in a press release. Marshall nominated Guerrero in March.
Marshall commended Guerrero for her work in implementing engagement strategies for math. Guerrero was involved in the Math Project at UC Santa Barbara, a professional development program for K-12 mathematics, and also helped coordinate the annual Family Math Night at Canalino in November 2022.
“Rigorous math tasks are necessary to the future success of students, and, put simply, she talks the talk and walks the walk,” Marshall said.
