Welcome to 4th grade! I am so glad you are a part of our Awesome Mastermind team! This is my 32nd year teaching. I have taught all the subjects at some point throughout the years, but I love Language Arts - Writing, Spelling & Grammar! I went to Hallsville as a student, graduated from HHS, and I am so proud to be a Bobcat for life. My family inclues 1 sister, 3 nieces, 1 great niece and 2 great nephews. They are the total and complete LOVES of my life! Also, I have an absolutely beautiful AND SPOILED miniature Australian Shepherd named Zoie Bryndle who keeps me on my toes. I couldn't possibly love her any more than I already do; she's my best companion. I stay busy being active in my church, and I enjoy cooking, reading, playing games (I’m a secret Candy Crush addict) and vegetable gardening. Things that make me happy are: my family, the color PINK, Zoie, & UNSWEET TEA!
I love to laugh and have fun, but we also work very hard here at school. We live by this motto: When it’s time to work (Aug-April), WE WORK HARD….when it’s time to play, we PLAY HARD. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I BELIVE I CAN DO IS FORM A STRONG BOND and TRUST WITH YOU, YOUR CHILD, and YOUR FAMILY. I love your children dearly and have been praying for them and this school year all summer (before I even knew their names)!!!!
All of my students are my ‘kids,’!!!! I love them, respect them, and set high expectations for them, academically, emotionally, and socially. We are all striving to be the BEST WE CAN BE! I know this will be an awesome year! Thank you for sharing your child with me; I can think of no greater privilege!
