Mrs. Janet Whatley

My name is Janet Whatley and I am originally from New Mexico, however I have now lived in Texas for over two decades.  I married my high school sweetheart  34 years ago, and we have two beautiful, amazing daughters, who are both teachers and incredible individuals.  I also have the cutest, most adorable, sweet grandson who is the light of my life.  

I earned my Bachelor of Accountancy from New Mexico State University and enjoyed a career in the corporate world for several years.  Once my own children began to reach school age, I felt a calling to teach, so I returned to school and completed a graduate program in Elementary Education at University of New Mexico.

I started my career in Albuquerque, NM then moved to Sugar Land where I taught at Oyster Creek Elementary for 18 years. I joined the Cornerstone team in 2017 as a 5th grade ELA, Reading, and Social Studies teacher.  I love introducing students to great literature and connecting the stories they read with informational text.  In my class we will enjoy literature discussions and debates and will experience a love for reading and learning. I love teaching young writers, and in my class, everyone gets to experience joy and success in writing.  I love partnering with my students' families to make sure my students are successful and happy, and I look forward to working together to make this a great school year!
