Ms. Becky Elkins

Hello!  My name is Becky Elkins and I am a Kindergarten Teacher at Highlands Elementary.  I love teaching kindergarten and my motto is "Highlands is the place to be!".  I have been at Highlands for twenty-six years and this is my seventeenth year teaching kindergarten.

I am a graduate of the University of Houston - Downtown (Go Coogs!) with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I received my teaching certificate from ACT Houston.  I am Gifted and Talented certified and also ESL certified.  I also graduated from Dulles High School and attended Sugar Land Middle School. 

 I am originally from Dallas, but have lived in the Sugar Land area most of my life.  I have a 31 year-old son, Danny, who lives in Downtown Houston and is the love of my life!  He sometimes volunteers at school or assists as a chaperone on field trips. 

I am an avid animal lover and have 5 dogs at home (Lily, Lucy, Luke, Ladybug, and Barkley) - and two cats (Jax and Steve).  All of my pets are rescues and I did not name any of them! 

Although we know that this year will start in a different manner, I know that we will have a great year together!
