Mrs. Cortés

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jaylani Cortés and thank you for visiting my page.  A little bit about me I have been teaching in public schools for over 8 years.  My teaching experience includes teaching film, dance, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade English Courses along with AP literature and AP Language.  I am a big proponent of technology in the classroom and do my best to incorporate various platforms such as Google Suite, PollEverywhere, Visuwords, Kahoot and Remind as a intricate part of my weekly lessons.  I subscribe to the philosophy that every student is a scholar and must be encouraged to be engaged and accountable for their own performance in the classroom environment and in life.  Should you have any questions please feel free to email me.  I look forward to working with you in supporting students here at Pittsburg High School.  Go Pirates!!!!
