Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Rebecca Robinson
Welcome back! I know the last couple of years have been pretty crazy for everyone - students, teachers, and parents! Hopefully this school year will be a little more "back to normal"! Just know that whether this school year turns out to be "normal" or not, I am truly excited to have you in my 6th grade ELAR class :)
A little bit about me...
I was born and raised here in Karnes City. I graduated from KCHS in 1992 and moved to San Antonio where I attended UTSA and received my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. After graduation, I got a job teaching 6th grade in Floresville and taught there for 17 years before moving back to Karnes City. This is now my 25th year teaching and I have taught sixth grade every year except one! I am married to Raymond Robinson who is the Director of Grants and Students Services here at Karnes City ISD and we have two daughters named Kiera and Jaiden. Kiera is attending Texas A&M in College Station and Jaiden is currently a Senior here at KCHS.

6TH GRADE ELAR SYLLABUS BY NINE WEEKS
Below is a brief overview of what 6th grade Reading/Language skills the state of Texas requires teachers to cover. Some of these skills may take longer to teach so we might start a skill in one nine weeks but finish it in the next. All of the TEKS that 6th grade ELAR teachers are required to teach are centered on students listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking. These skills are set by the state and because we really have a lot to teach each nine weeks, attendance and positive classroom behavior are extremely important.
