Laurie Bonner2nd Grade
Hi! My name is Laurie Bonner and I can't wait to see what this year holds! I am from the Nacogdoches area where I attended school (Martinsville ISD) and then college at Stephen F. Austin State University. I graduated from SFA with my Bachelors degree in Education. I am in my 11th year of teaching, 8 of those in the public school setting, and my second year in HISD. I have taught pre-k and kindergarten, but my absolute favorite is SECOND grade!!
My husband, Zach and I have lived in Hallsville for 4 years and stay busy with our three kids: Chloe, Brantley and Ramsey. My boys love hunting and baseball and spend lots of time at the ballpark! My daughter is a member of Fusion's Dance Company and we travel to several competitions through the year. When we are not at the ballpark or dance studio, you can find us camping or out on the lake!
My name is Becky Meitzen and I am so very excited about this school year! This will be my second year at Hallsville ISD. Our family located here from Indiana and we ABSOLUTELY love it! I graduated from Texas A&M with a business degree, then decided I was born to teach so I returned to Lamar University and received a Master’s in Education. I have taught grades Pre-K through 6th grade, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 2nd grade!
Aside from being a teacher, I am also a wife and mother! My husband, Jimmie and I just celebrated 18 years of marriage! We were blessed with two WONDERFUL daughters! Makenzie our 15 year old, plays soccer on the varsity soccer team for Hallsville High School and Maggie our 11 year old is active in UIL Science and Math team at the Jr High School.
