Ms. Day

Grade:  4th grade homeroom; 4th grade English and Language Arts and Social Studies

Favorite Quotation:  “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 40:31


Why I teach:  I love helping kids learn and grow.       


Education and Training:  I earned my bachelor’s degree (Business Administration) and master’s degree (Healthcare Management) at the University of Texas at Dallas.  I also completed my Teacher Certification coursework at UTD.  As a member of the Air Force Reserve, I was trained in medical administration.     


Where I Have Lived:  I was born in Arkansas, and my family moved to Texas when I was three years old.  I grew up in Richardson and Garland.  In fact, both of my childhood homes are very close to St. Joseph.  Now, I live in Wylie.   


My Professional Experience:  I did some entry level work at a corporation before having children.  Then I realized I wanted to become a teacher.  My teaching experience includes years of substitute teaching from Kindergarten through 8th grade before teaching full-time in 3rd grade, 6th grade, and 8th grade.  I’m thrilled to be teaching 4th grade this year!


My Family:  I have been blessed with a wonderful mom and two amazing daughters.  My girls attend Wylie High School.   


Something you might not know about me:  I have made over 3,100 skydives. 


A prayer for my students: 

Heavenly Father,

Please watch over my students and guide them.  Help them use their unique gifts to help others.  I pray for abundant blessings in their lives, perseverance to endure trials, and hearts that show your love to the world.
