Welcome to English Language Arts!
I am so excited to get our school year underway! In my class we read, write, practice grammar, research, and engage in classroom discussion. By the end of our time together, I want my students to feel they have made progress in their learning and I want them to takeaway lifelong skills and lessons that can be applied, not only to their next courses, but any future endeavors.
Bio: I am originally from Tomball, Texas (Houston area) and am the only child of Jimmy and Debbie Conn who now live in Carlsbad as well. We moved out this way after hunting out here for many years. We got tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city and felt this is where we were truly called to plant our roots. I taught at WV previously back in 2012-2014, and came back as fast as I could! I have been married to my husband Chad since 2017 and we have three dogs (two dachshunds, Copper & Penny and one Blue Heeler, Pepper).
Education: I graduated from Tomball High School in 1994. I graduated from Ranger College with an Associate of Arts in Interior Design. Transferred to UTSA and received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with a minor in Kinesiology.
Interesting facts: I love the Lord. I love sports. I played 1st base at Ranger and UT San Antonio on a full scholarship. I love NASCAR! My mom's side of the family owns the Houston Texans. I can be bribed with any type of gummy candy.
We are going to have a great year and I am super excited to work with each of you!
