Mrs. Devi Filip
My name is Devi Filip and let me give you a little background information of myself. I was born in England but raised in Sri Lanka. ( a tiny island in the Indian Ocean) In my elementary years I studied in Singapore and Sri Lanka. During my undergrad years I studied in the Hebrew University in Israel, E.B.S in Rudersberg,Germany,and Lee University in Cleveland,Tennessee. My graduate studies were all in California in Chapman University and Point Loma Nazarene University.
My dear husband, Dorel was born in Romania and together we have four beautiful children, three grandchildren and two awesome sons in law. We live in the city of Norco and love to pour ourselves into our community.My pets are a Tabby cat named Craven and a Siberian Husky named Vega Korra.
This is my twenty first year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth grades. Currently I teach first grade focusing on Common Core Standards. Corona Ranch is a school that strives to keep education engaging and rigorous.
I hope that I will have the pleasure of meeting you soon.Contact Info:firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Education seeks to have every teacher certified in the area in which they are teaching. If this criteria is met, the teacher is "Highly Qualified".Arrival and Dismissal
At Corona Ranch, we recognize that the first day of First Grade is a milestone in your child's life. It is the second major separation from the secure and familiar world of home and family, and it marks the entrance into a new universe of friendship, learning environment and adventure - a world that parents can never again entirely share. Your greatest gift to your child at this time is your loving support and understanding.
A Sensitive TimeThis may be a sensitive time for your child and tears are not uncommon. If your child should cry, try not to overreact. In most cases the tears will soon disappear. We, as adults, often forget how much the new school year requires - longer days, new rules and responsibilities and new teachers. First grade is very different from kindergarten and is a big adjustment for some. It is a time to be an enthusiastic, positive parent. Be a good listener and allow your child time to talk about school and the people there!
Arrival and Dismissal
Our students are our greatest asset and their safety is our first priority. To ensure your child's safety, we ask that you carefully review our arrival and dismissal procedures. All procedures are monitored by our staff.
Arrival: Students may enter the school grounds through the two front gates or the back gate that opens to the Village Loop park. They are then be expected to walk to the playground, use the restroom if possible and remain there until the 7:40 bell rings. When the first bell rings, students will line up on the number F106 for Mrs. Filip's class.
Dismissal: Students are dismissed in the front of the school at 1:57 p.m. except for Wednesdays, which will be at 12:57 p.m. Please be sure the your child is clear as to whom they will be going home with. It can be very stressful for a child who may not be sure who is picking them up.Children who are not picked up on time will be taken to the front office by the teacher/supervisor on dismissal duty about 15-20 minutes after dismissal.
Do not allow your child to run next to or after your car. Please be sure to instruct them to wait until you have pulled completely forward in the line and until your vehicle has to come to a complete a stop before entering your car.
