I believe it is vital that students need to SEE us (teachers) outside of our classrooms in support of things they love - such as sports and so on. I am the new advisor for the school GSA club and on Sunday we walked in the Palm Springs PRIDE Parade. We chose to invite our RMHS teachers and Staff. I was so proud of how many of our staff and their family showed up to participate with our students. The students were so excited to see how supported they are and I really think this changed their outlook on themselves and the teachers. I was so PROUD to be a Rattler. We even had a drum line show up. These kids know they are supported.
Welcome to the 2018/2019 Rattler school year! I am very excited to meet and get to know each of you new students and definitely very excited to see my returning students, again! I hope you had an amazing summer and are ready to come back to school. I have a lot of fun stuff planned this year for my classes and look forward to seeing what you all bring to the table.
For my returning students: I am in a new classroom this year: 655! Even if you aren't in my class this year, be sure to come by and say HI!
You can contact me any time via my email: MHilario@psusd.us or via the contact page on this website!
This past Sunday, April 22nd, was Earth Day - thus I wanted to do something all week long. I started with having students create an Earth Day Haiku - they turned out AWESOME! Their creativity never ceases to amaze me.
I have refocused efforts in recycling and placed my recycling bag right next to the door. We have managed to fill it twice already this week! GO TEAM EARTH!
My Study Skills students are doing an assignment fully online through Google Forms in their Google Classroom. They will be sharing what they learned via google slides. NO PAPER! We will do this a lot more from now on.
Sciences are watching videos on what would happen to earth if humans were to suddenly disappear! I suggest you watch it - it is so telling! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyEUyqfrScU&t=4505s
We can't live without the earth but it can definitely live without us!
Saving paper for a week isn't terribly challenging and the kids go with the flow. I hope to be able to continue this on through next week and perhaps next year, I can go mainly paperless!

Hey Rattlers! Have a safe and enjoyable spring break! You deserve it =D
I look forward to seeing you back in two weeks!
