Hi! I'm Stephanie Neal and I am excited to be teaching 5th grade reading and science. This will be my 19th year to teach, and my first year at West Columbia Elementary. I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I've taught all subjects in 4th, 5th and 6th grade. I love teaching my big kids! As a teacher, I strive to learn and grow in order to be the best I can for my students. In our classroom I want students to feel safe, respected and cared for. My hope is that students will develop a love for learning, that they will leave the classroom with a desire to come back for more, and that they will know that with hard work they CAN do anything.
Last year, my family and I moved to West Columbia from Arlington, Texas and we are proud to call it home. My husband and I have 3 children. Colton is a 4th grader and Wyatt is a 2nd grader at WCE. We also have a 4 year old daughter, Avalyn. I love spending time with my family, reading, baking, fixing up and decorating our house, and shopping.
This is going to be an amazing year! I'm so thrilled to be your teacher!
