Welcome to our homepage! I am Mrs. Cortez and I teach at Valley View ISD 5th grade campus. I am the Computer Lab Reading Teacher. The importance of reading cannot be stressed enough. Reading is important because it enriches you in all aspects. Along with Miss Garza I keep track of our top AR Readers and our Millionaire Readers. I am also the UIL Ready Writing Coach.
