Hello, my name is Judy Silva. I enjoy teaching and I feel blessed to be able to teach here in Diboll. I am originally from Zavalla and have now lived in Diboll for 15 years. I graduated from SFA in May 2012 with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am going into my 6th year of teaching here in Diboll. I have only taught in 6th grade.
I have a wonderful husband who is a graduate of Diboll and works for Maintenance and Transportation. He and I have 3 boys attending Diboll ISD. I look forward to the 2017-2018 year and many more years to come.

Course Overview of 6th Grade Math Source: Texas Education Agency/TEA (TEKS- Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills)
The primary focal areas in Grade 6 are number and operations; proportionality; expressions, equations, and relationships; and measurement and data. Students use concepts, algorithms, and properties of rational numbers to explore mathematical relationships and to describe increasingly complex situations. Students use concepts of proportionality to explore, develop, and communicate mathematical relationships. Students use algebraic thinking to describe how a change in one quantity in a relationship results in a change in the other. Students connect verbal, numeric, graphic, and symbolic representations of relationships, including equations and inequalities. Students use geometric properties and relationships, as well as spatial reasoning, to model and analyze situations and solve problems. Students communicate information about geometric figures or situations by quantifying attributes, generalize procedures from measurement experiences, and use the procedures to solve problems. Students use appropriate statistics, representations of data, and reasoning to draw conclusions, evaluate arguments, and make recommendations. While the use of all types of technology is important, the emphasis on algebra readiness skills necessitates the implementation of graphing technology.
