Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Filiz Baykal

      Hello, 4th-grade families! Welcome to our classroom! I’m looking forward to a wonderful year full of new friends and exciting adventures! I can’t wait to get to know each of you throughout the year. Here’s a little bit about me. I have two amazing children. My son is a new Bowie Bear going into the 6th grade. My daughter is a Travis Tiger going into the 10th grade.

       I graduated from The University of Texas in Austin with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Shortly after, I moved back to Houston to be closer to family and pursue my teaching career. I began teaching at a charter school in 2008. There, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade before becoming a Reading Interventionist and GT Coordinator. While teaching, I received my Master’s Degree in Education as a Reading Specialist from the University of Saint Thomas. This past year I successfully completed my Educational Diagnostician certification. This will be my sixth year at Neill. I am so excited to share this new journey with all of you and can’t wait to get started on the new school year!
