Welcome to Pecan Grove Elementary! Third grade will be such an exciting year full of new learning for your child. I have been a teacher for 20 years. I graduated from Texas A&M University in May of 1982, and taught for five years before staying home with my children for thirteen years. During this time, my two children attended Pecan Grove Elementary. I returned to teaching in 2000 and began teaching fourth grade at Pecan Grove Elementary. I taught fourth grade for eight years before leaving to teach at a private school for a couple of years. I returned to Pecan Grove Elementary in the Fall of 2014 to teach third grade. I was amazed how much new learning happens in third grade having always taught fourth or fifth grade. I love watching the students get excited about learning and the looks on their faces when they feel a sense of accomplishment. I always tell my students that they become one of my own children the minute they walk into my classroom, and I truly mean it. I care about each of my students and want the very best for them. It's going to be a fantastic year!
