Hello! My name is Lori Hale and I am pleased to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my 11th year teaching at Atascocita Springs Elementary! I taught kindergarten for 5 years, Intervention for 1 year and this will be my fifth year teaching first grade. The children and I will spend a great deal of time getting to know each other during the first days of school, but I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. I have 20 years of teaching experience, at Pre-school, Kindergarten and First Grade levels.
My husband Terry and I have been married for 26 years, and we are the parents of two beautiful daughters, Savannah (A graduate from Stephen F. Austin Nursing Program), and Peyton (A graphic design/computer science graduate from University of North Texas). We were also blessed with a new grandbaby this past February.
When I’m not at school, I devote my time to enjoying my family and friends. I also enjoy painting, traveling and watching HGTV.
I am a firm believer in the partnership of school and home. A child is a precious gift. No one knows or loves your child the way that you do. It is crucial that we communicate and cooperate for the benefit of the child. Please feel free to ask questions, and to let me know if you have a concern. I will do the same. It will be exciting to watch the children grow as we work together.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me. I am looking forward to a great year!
