Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Byrd

Teaching  is an absolute passion of mine and I am so excited to be working with you and your  child  this year! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning  and lots of  adventures. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I though you might like to know a little about  me.

I grew up in Lenoir, NC near the beautiful mountains. For the past 7 years I have lived and taught in  Davidson  County, but I decided that it was time to come home to be closer to my family.  Some  hobbies  that I enjoy are reading, painting, cooking and playing with my dog Yosef. I am the youngest of 3 and my husband and I have 4 nephews and 1 niece. I graduated from ASU in 2008. 

This will be my  8th  year teaching in the classroom. I have spent the past 3 years teaching  fourth  grade and before that,  I taught  third grade for 5 years. I absolutely love  teaching  4th grade and it is my mission  to instill a  love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subjects, so that my students develop a desire to become  life long   learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is very important to keep communication open  between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to  a  great  year  together!
