Hi Y’all! My name is Leahlyn Clare and I am so excited to be moving to third grade this year! This will be my sixth year teaching and my third year working with the district. I am blessed to be teaching in the district I grew up. I taught first grade for two years in Lubbock and I moved back three years ago. I received my teaching degree from Texas Tech University and am a lifelong Red Raider! Guns Up! I have two boxers named Georgia and Keela. I am recently married to Kevin Clare and we love hanging out with our dogs, going to eat with friends and watching movies. In my spare time I am almost always at the gym, spending time with Mr Clare and our dogs, or reading a book. I cannot wait to get to know you and your family! This is going to be one "sharp" year! 

My goals for the year include...

1. Getting to spend time with every student and their family outside of school. I want to cheer them on at sporting events, or meet y'all for dinner somewhere! It's up to you where and how but I feel it is very important to get to know my kids as more than just a student and the same goes for them, I am more than a teacher and I want to cheer them on in life- not just the classroom!

2. Creating highly engaging lessons that feel more like an "experience" than a boring presentation. I want each of my kids to CRAVE coming to school and want to be there, even if they didn't have to be.

3. Finding a means of communication that are clear and consistent and reach everyone.

4. Creating confident, life-long learners and problem solvers that go beyond the everyday math problem or reading question.
