San Bernardino City USD Demonstration Teachers

We are here to help support our new and veteran teachers in their classrooms! We're here to help you!

Year round we investigate and research Common Core Standards and best teaching practices. We attend conferences and look to the Common Core experts to plan our everyday lessons to best implement CCSS. We then invite all educators to our classrooms to observe and learn while we model demonstration lessons. We also film videos to better help teachers understand how to apply Common Core in the classr

SBCUSD teachers in the house! DT Keisha Adams hosted “Curtis Workout Day” and these are the teachers and staff that showed up to support our PE Department 💪🏾💦🏃🏾‍♀️They did a warm up, 2 laps and tug of war. Everyone is exhausted haha 😂

Our Demo Teachers are always looking for ways to impact our students, both in and out of the classroom. DT Richard Tejada coordinated 120 backpacks donated by PBK to Curtis Middle School! Our students at Curtis MS will get good use of these and be better prepared to learn without having to worry about what to carry their school supplies in. 🥹🎉

Curtis Middle School would like to thank for their generosity. They donated over 100 backs for our scholars. Thank you for making a difference one backpack at a time. 🙏🏽

I had the absolute pleasure to sit in on Demo Teacher Vanee Matsalia’s PBiS PD at King MS’s New Teacher Academy today.

I am always completely in awe of our Demo Teachers. They are such excellent classroom teachers and they are just as strong in front of a room full of adult learners. Vanee is so comfortable and confident in her content and she made these new teachers feel comfortable with her too. Her presentation was timely and necessary as our new teachers are always working to ensure their classroom management is strong, practical and effective.

Thank you so much Vanee, and all our Demo Teachers, for sharing your expertise and experience with our new teachers. We see you! 🥹🎉

After lunch and a debrief with Jordyn and David, I left them in Mr. Tacchia’s very capable hands and moved onto the afternoon observations with new ELD teacher Caleb from AVHS. We had the opportunity to visit Dan Jimenez at San Andreas HS and Hannah Bodnar at Cajon HS, both teaching ELD and doing an incredible job of it. Loved watching these two teachers connect with their students.

Today was another incredible day out and about in San Bernardino City USD classrooms! I was able to take new King MS ELA teachers Jordyn and David to Serrano and Curtis Middle Schools to observe Demo Teachers in English and math classrooms. They learned so much and were so thankful for the opportunity to watch excellent teaching and learning. 🎉

Out and about in Demo classrooms again! Today RPA Demo Teacher Kelsey Smith took her mentee Ms. Alvarado-Cervantes to observe Vanee Matsalia-Smith, Richard Tejada, Abigail Tejada, and Oana Matei. Ms. Alvarado-Cervantes absolutely loved the experience.

Thank you to our amazing Demo Teachers who always have their classroom doors open. The experts are already in the room. 👏🎉

So inspired by the excellent professional development that Demo Teachers Keith Brockie and Robyn Holt are hosting at Arroyo Valley HS for new and veteran district art teachers. The focus at this workshop was on fostering engaging self-identity lessons for their students. It was very hands on, and district teachers loved the opportunity to make art.

Thank you Keith and Robyn for your commitment to our art teachers! Their students will benefit from their new knowledge. 🖼

Supporting a student-teacher in your classroom is a labor of love. We are so lucky in to have excellent educators who want to pay it forward. Here's a short video of what some STs had to say about their MTs. ❤️👏

Halloween Throwback! AVHS Teaching Academy Teachers, circa 2012. Loved this team and everything we stood for. 🎃😆🎉

Love Mrs. Martinez’s Halloween room environment as her kids work to “escape the room” 🕷️

Who says learning can’t be fun?! 🎃

Not Ms. Angelica Martinez! This AVHS English Teacher and MYP Coordinator is making sure her 10th graders are enjoying their Halloween while working hard.

Her students are working together in groups on 5 tasks to “escape the room!” All tasks are all English aligned and Halloween themed. The first group to get all tasks correct receives extra credit points and a handful of candy.

It's teachers like Ms. Martinez who make kids want to go to class. I love our SBCUSD teachers who are in it for the kids and always go in the extra mile to make sure their students are engaged and involved.

Love to see our Demos out and about in the community! We are great partners with UCR and they always ask for our Demo Teachers to speak to their future teachers.

Curtis MS Demo Teachers Vanèe Smith-Matsalia and Keisha Adams, accompanied by Vanèe's student teacher Chinia Lyons, ran a 1 day clinic on Restorative Classroom Practices for the UCR School of Education. They focused on blending restorative ideology and day-to-day classroom practices that really work. They spoke to over 200 future educators.

Thank you Curtis Demos - and Ms. Lyons! - for always being ready to share best practices with our future educators. 🎉👏

Our wonderful Secondary Education partners are always working to ensure our teachers have the support they need.

Today, middle school English Program Specialist Asifa Geerlings was out at King Middle School to work on Teacher Clairty with the ELA team. She meets with them monthly to work on lesson and unit planning, the ELA scope and sequence and whatever other resources they may need.

Thank you Secondary Ed for working with these new teachers! They are so lucky to learn from you. 🎉

For all our new teachers who are struggling right now. It’s a tough part of the year. We see you and we value you. You got this. ❤️

We love when our amazing Demonstration Teachers present outside the district so other California educators can learn from them! 🎉

This past weekend Mod/Severe Demo Teachers Holm and Liliana Narcizo presented at the CTA Special Education Conference in Anaheim.

They had TWO presentations! The first PD was titled “Reaching All Students in a General Education classroom”, and the second was targeting evidence-based Behavior Management techniques. The largest group they spoke to included 113 participants.

Thank you both for working so hard on your craft, and always being willing to share with other educators. 👏💯

Big things happening at Belvedere ES! They hosted the Mid Autumn Moon Festival which was organized by Librarian Charlotte Gonzales and Belvedere teacher Christine Nguyen. SB Mayor Tran came to read a story to DST Mike Duarte’s class and participated in activities for the Mid Autumn Festival with the class. Love when the community comes out to support our students. 🎉📚👏

So inspired by these SBCUSD teachers who took time out of their night (6 pm!) to speak to a CSUSB college class of future secondary teachers about teaching reading and writing across the curriculum and formative/summative assessments in their content.

These veteran teachers are exactly who these future teachers should be learning from! Love opportunities like this where we can bring these different groups together to learn from one another.

Kudos to their CSUSB professor (and current AVHS English teacher) Angelica Martinez who is always searching for excellent ways to engage her college students! 🎉👏
