• Welcome to 4th Grade  

    Mrs. Craig’s Class 

    Welcome back to school!  Our theme for this year is “T.E.A.M.-Together Everyone Achieves More,” and I am looking forward to growing with your child.  This will be my twenty-third year of teaching, and I know it will be an awesome year.  My teaching philosophy is that every child is capable of learning somehow and someway.  I believe that education is a team effort, and I will rely on the home to support your child’s learning by promoting good study habits. 

    A little background information about myself:  I was born and raised in O’Donnell, Texas and graduated from high school in 1988.  After high school I attended West Texas A&M University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 1998.  In 1999, I completed a Teacher Certification Program through Region 18 Education Service Center in Midland, Texas.  I am currently certified to teach the following:

    On a personal note, I celebrated my 31st wedding anniversary this summer.  My husband is Gerald Craig and he is a claims adjuster with Texas Farm Bureau in Fredericksburg.  We have a wonderful nine-year old son, Charlie, who is in fourth grade this year.  Other members of our family are 3 Corgi’s named Cadell, Tegan, and Evie.  Some of my hobbies and interests are Cub Scouts, baking, camping, and watching movies. 

    I am looking forward to working and growing with your child.  Let’s work together to have an exceptional school year.
