Mrs. Darlene James

It is an honor to be teaching at Sienna Crossing Elementary School! This is my sixteenth year as an educator at Sienna Crossing Elementary.  This is my eleventh year teaching first grade.  I have also taught third grade for two years and fourth grade for three years.  I was born in San Antonio, Texas and then moved to Austin, Texas when I was eleven years old.  I graduated from The University of Texas in 1987 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing.  After college, I was employed by United Healthcare as a Senior Account Manager and I worked there for ten years.  I took some education classes in college and pursued my dream of becoming an educator.  In 2006, I obtained my Educator’s Certification.  My husband, Bill is a Sales Manager for Acme Brick.  We have three sons named Joshua, Jacob and John. I have twos daughters in law named Kristie and Sophie.  I also have a granddaughter named Josie.  In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, decorating and yoga.  

It is a pleasure watching my students grow as readers, writers and mathematicians.
