My name is Sally Kinsey. I am a 5th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher. I have taught for 29 years. I have a BA in teaching from Sam Houston State University. I have taught self-contained 2nd and 3rd grade, math and science in 4th, and ELA/Social Studies in both 3rd- 5th grade. I am excited to be at CME, teaching ELA and Social Studies. I love the excitement that my students express as they eagerly learn new skills and concepts through hands-on experiences, problem solving, and working with each other.
My favorite quote is: “Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C s. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy.” ~ Walt Disney
I am married to Mark, and we have three adult sons. When I am not teaching, I am visiting my sons, working on different arts/craft projects, playing with photography, traveling, volunteering where I can help, and playing with my mixed breed dog Appa.
Our theme this year is "Learning the Incredible Journey" I'm so excited to see what your children will accomplish in my class, as we use this year to think outside the box and travel this incredible journey together.
