Mrs. Mahn

Dear Junior High Families and the De Soto Community, 


At De Soto Junior High we strive to reach and teach each student every minute of every day in a safe and respectful manner that most meets the varied learning styles of our students.  We strive to impart a desire in our students to learn more about various curricular topics through questioning and curiosity.  This curiosity leads to deeper understanding and further questioning.  Our overall goal is to instill a growth mindset in our students. We want to inspire our kids to embrace challenges and problem-solving tasks and to realize that some of the most valuable learning experiences occur when one perseveres to solve a thought-provoking problem.  We want our kids to realize that each day, they know more and are able to do more than the day before and we want them to understand that the learning mastered today will impact their learning in the future.

We are proud of our students and of our faculty for the learning, growth, and success that they experience each day.  We believe that we are all learners at the Junior High and we believe that all of our students can and will be successful.  We look forward to our continued partnership with our families and our community.  Our students are our greatest and most valuable resource and working together to cultivate and nurture our middle school learners will lead to strong, capable, and confident students.

Sincerely,

Alex
