Mrs. Starkey

  • I started working for BISD in 2009.  I spent the first 3 years in Pre-K and then moved to First Grade.  First grade is my passion.  I want each student to enjoy coming to school and to feel successful.  

    My husband is a firefighter.  He also builds houses by word of mouth and does remodels and decorative concrete.  We have 5 grown children ages 19-28 and 7 grandchildren ages infant-6 years. We have 2 Great Danes, one cat and many horses.  My hobbies are scrapbooking, raising Friesian horses (Black Majesty Friesians on FB), genealogy, Bible journaling and anything crafty.  I do weekly Dressage riding lessons, which is like ballet for horses and a huge workout for the rider.  I am also an avid reader.

    Your child will probably come home with some outrageous stories about my quarter horse named Rhett.  He has gotten in a hammock and got his front legs stuck, opened the house door and came in looking for me one night, turns on the barn lights, misters & fans that are thermostat controlled, opens stalls or locks other horses in stalls, opened the electric gate and escaped many times but never ran off. Needless to say, we have an electric fence on all pastures because of him.
