Hello! Welcome to fifth grade at Scanlan Oaks Elementary!! My name is Ann Stickler and I love working with the amazing kids here at Scanlan Oaks. This will be my sixth year in 5th grade, teaching ELA/Reading and Social Studies. I have taught first and second grade as well but love being where I am now. I began my teaching career way back in 1995 after graduating from the University of Texas - Austin. Once my husband and I started our family, I decided to go back to school. I took his advice, and earned a law degree from South Texas College of Law in 2002. I worked with my husband for about ten years as an attorney before finally coming back to my first love, teaching. When my son and two daughters were going through elementary school, they had so many great teachers. Those men and women inspired me to come back and try to make a difference in each and every student that passes through our doors. My son, Tyson, just graduated from The United States Naval Academy. He is currently finishing up his Masters Degree in Operations Research from the University of George Mason in Virginia. Once he finishes in December, he will head to Flight School in Pensacola, Florida. My oldest daughter, Lauren will be in her third year of college at The University of Texas in Austin. Lauren is studying Mechanical Engineering and just completed her course work for a minor in Business. Finally, my youngest, Meredith, will be at Ridge Point High School this year as a Senior. My free time is filled with watching Meredith play golf or driving her back and forth from tournaments, practices, etc. I am very lucky to live in such a great community with my family. I look forward to a great year working with both the students and their parents here at Scanlan Oaks Elementary! Welcome!
