Welcome to the Region 19 K-12 Science page! Our goal is to continually provide the most effective, aligned, and prescriptive support to all the schools in our El Paso and Hudspeth county region. As a part of the Academic Instruction School Support (AISS) team, we continually work together to address the multi-faceted educational needs of our students and teachers. We welcome any questions and/or input you may have about our organization. Our Elementary Science consultant is Donna Cuevas, she has over 20 years in differentiation and has been with the ESC for 8 years. Our Middle and high school consultant, Ernesto Herrera, has been serving science teachers across the region for 5 years. We are here to serve you.
Welcome Elementary Science Teachers!
At the Education Service Center Region 19 we pride ourselves in providing top quality service to all our teachers, administrators, and students. ESC Region 19 offers research-based, classroom-proven PreK-12 science professional development opportunities. These opportunities focus on Science literacy, Science concepts, Differentiation, and more. Our unified vision of student success is what drives us to provide excellent service to our educators. We are available for classroom technical support if ever needed.
The ESC science team values the importance of early experiences in science so that students develop problem-solving skills that empower them to participate in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
Welcome Middle/High School Science Teachers!
Welcome to the ESC - Region 19 middle/high school science site. The science team at Region 19 supports success for all students through teacher and administrator education and collaboration.
Middle school is not only a continuation of learning facts and vocabulary, but also developing the ability to ask scientific questions, plan experiments to answer these questions, and develop reasonable explanations based on their observations. High school science will provide a way to extend a student's interest and skill in understanding the nature and importance of science in today's world. All of our sessions and technical support are built on these principles.
Our goal is to equip teachers with the knowledge and skills to engage students in meaningful science learning experiences that will improve students' scientific literacy and inspire them to pursue science and engineering-related careers.
