    Welcome to Mrs. Colbert's 3rd-grade class!
    A little about me: My husband and I have 3 children. We have Faith, who is a college student, and our 6-year-old twins Kade and Paisley who attend school right here at HHE! We also have a crazy cat named Grey and a German Shepherd named Jade! I have been teaching 3rd grade for about 16 years. I first stepped into the halls of HHE back in 2000 as a special education paraprofessional and continued in that position for 6 years. After graduating from Sam Houston State University with my teaching degree and experiencing other districts for a while, I was blessed to return home to HHE in 2010! In May of 2022 I completed my Master's Degree in Special Education with an Educational Diagnositican program with Lamar University.
    If I could tell you the most important thing you should know about our classroom is that we are a family. We take care of one another and are helpful and respectful to each other at all times. My students learn that good character means you ALWAYS do the right thing even when someone else isn't watching. I believe that this is the very best environment to learn in. In my classroom you are SAFE.  
    To my parents, please know that you are always welcome to call, email, or use Remind to contact me. I welcome your questions and concerns. I know that working together we can help your child to be the best they can be. I am honored to be your child's teacher. Thank you so much for trusting me with your babies. I promise to love them and treasure them as if they were my own.
