Welcome to Mr. Umana’s reading class. I'm super excited to have each and every one of you in my class this year. I can’t wait to see the many great things you will be able to accomplish in my class and outside of it. I’m looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you.
This reading class is centered around the Read to Achieve program and will be focused on improving the students' reading abilities. We will cover a variety of topics in our readings and I’m excited to begin the learning. One thing that I ask of all my students is to always give your best effort on any given day. I know that life can throw many things at us and we will have days that are not our best. But even on those bad days we put forth the best effort that we can. Let's make this a great year!

Office Hours: In the case that you want to get in contact with me, I will be available via email on all district work days, Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM. Please keep in mind that teachers have 24-48 hours to respond to emails. Emailing me will be the most efficient way to get in contact with me since I do have in-person classes as well and the opportunities to talk on the phone will be limited. The most efficient way to talk on phone with me will be by setting up a time in advance via email to talk. I will be available to talk in the morning before classes begin and in the afternoon after all classes are done. Otherwise I may have time during the day but it will have to be a specific predetermined time. Thank you in advance for working with me as a team to ensure that our students are being successful.
