Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to 8th grade Cobras! I am Mr. Piseno, your 8th
grade Science and Sci Tech teacher. My goal for this year is to make
science fun and interesting! Careers in technology related fields are expected to rise
22% by the year 2020. I want your child to be prepared to deal with
technology by providing ample opportunities to interact with it in a
learning environment. This means they will NOT be allowed to text or
visit social media sites, but they will participate in science related
activities online. I will have a poster in the class that will indicate
the appropriate times to use their devices. Students using their devices
inappropriately or at an inappropriate time will result in confiscation
of the device for the remainder of the class period. The school is not
responsible for devices that are stolen or lost. As such, it is not a
requirement to bring any device to class. If you do not feel comfortable
sending your son or daughter to school with these devices, please keep
them at home. I will provide those students with computers in my class.
Additionally, the Canyon Hills Core Values of Trust Respect Responsibility and Safety shall always be followed in my classroom. It is through these core values that I expect to have a harmonious environment for learners of all types. Hopefully
we can make this a great year together!
If you need to contact me, you may call the school at (915) 231-2240 and set up an appointment or email me at Jrpiseno@episd.org. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. My conference period is during 2nd period from 8:39-9:24.
