Timpview family, WELCOME to the 2019-2020 school year!
As your school family, we’re excited to welcome you back. Whether this season marks your twelfth year in the Provo School District, or your first, we are committed to facilitating an amazing year.
I love our school mission. We are striving every day to help you be ready for college, career, and most importantly, ready for life. We believe that we can accomplish this aim by creating a space that is inclusive: where everyone has a place; where you feel emotionally and physically safe; and where you find positive connections with adults and peers. We believe in growth. We believe that you grow by taking risks, by trying new things, by falling and getting back up. We believe that failing is the foundation of learning. We also strive for excellence in everything we do. We may not always get it right, but we always give our best effort.
A guiding principle we invite everyone to consider is how you can take ownership of your own learning. Learning should be active, engaging, and constantly occurring throughout your life. Learning is not a passive activity but rather an act of courage and involvement. Learning new material or skills can be intimidating and often requires a leap of faith. When you make that leap and own your experience, you’ll gain confidence. You might not “get it” the first time, or second, or perhaps the third. However, persistence and grit will always pay off. Our teachers are committed to providing you an environment that is safe and supportive for learning: where you can ask questions, get feedback, and measure your own progress. We invite you to commit yourself to owning your learning and to take a leap that will expand your academic experience.
Our staff is committed to the underlying principles of our mission and vision. We invite you to consider them and find ways to apply them in your life during your tenure with us.
We love you all!
Sincerely, Dr. Fidel Montero
