     _______________________________________________________________________

    Born in Santa Monica, CA, I have spent the last 31 years living, working, and raising my family in Ventura.  Educated at Loyola Marymount University, I obtained my Education Specialist teaching credential at Camarillo's own Cal State University Channel Islands, and have enjoyed being in the classroom ever since.  My family and I spend a lot of time outdoors surfing, playing tennis, or hiking whenever we can. 

    My goal is to have my students grow in their own speaking, reading and writing of the English language while deepening their critical and analytical thinking skills in an open and supportive learning environment.

    Parents: Please remember to encourage our students to read at home regularly from whatever type of material interests them (with your approval, of course), and to keep their class READING LOG.  The reading log is worth valuable homework points in my grading system. Students are to read at least 20 minutes for 5 nights a week.  It is the students' responsibility to make their reading log entries (Title, Author, date, minutes read), then obtain their parents' verifying initials, each time they read.  *Our students will also be making daily assignment entries in their school-issued agenda book/daily planners.  Please take time to review your student's agenda/planner as often as possible.  Remember, student assignments can also be reviewed on the "Parent Connect" system available on our Las Colinas website.

    Thank you,

    Gerry Escallier
