Hello 5th Grade Panthers! I am cannot wait to get started this year! This is my fourth year wtih Bullard ISD, but my 22nd year in education. I began my career as a Reading Specialist, but where I found my passion for reading and writing was from from my grandmother (Grannyma), whom you will get to know and love through stories of her life this year. She lived her 95 years loving to learn and loving to share her knowledge. My desire is to do the same and to pass along that desire to all my students.
I love to make learning come alive and encourage creativity in every aspect of reading and writing. I will challenge you to think out of the box at all times. In my classroom we learn, we laugh, we create, we laugh we analyze, we laugh, we interpret, we laugh, we get lost in fictional times as well as intriguing information...and we are pushed beyond what we thought we could ever do or be.
You will read and write more than you ever thought possible... and will grow to love it (eventually). My desire is that you leave my classroom with a love of reading and writing that you will take along with you through the journey of writing your own book called "Life".
A little about me... I am a mom to 3 boys! Taye, is my oldest who left for Marine bootcamp on July 29. This is quite an adjustment for us all, but we know this is his calling. My middle son is Chayton. He will be at the middle school this year in 7th grade. He loves football and FFA, and has a heart for helping others. Dax is our baby. He is going to be in 4th grade at the elementary, loves entertaining, and life in general. I call him my joy boy, because he rarely is missing smile. My husband, Todd is the lab manager for the District TxDot office, and runs McCurley's Landscaping on the side. We are BUSY, as I know you all are as well.
Buckle Up Buttercups...its going to be a fun year!
