Meet your Teacher

 I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Mrs. Villa's 
3rd. grade class at Twelve Bridges Elementary School. My goal is to
provide the best academic program for each and every student as well as
support and guide students as they develop a sense of who they are.
For the past 21 years I have taught language arts, math, history,
science, and intervention at Glen Edwards Middle School and  Twelve
Bridges Elementary School.   I have also had experience teaching in 
classes ranging from K-8th grade and special education. It is my hope that
as parents, students, and teachers become more familiar with one another,  
they can support each other in providing the best possible educational  
program for all of the students. As a first step, I would like to share my personal background. I have a wonderful husband, five children and five grandchildren. I
also have 4 dogs, 1 cat, and fish. My spare time is spent enjoying our
 grand children, reading, camping, and riding my motorcycle.
 I also enjoy woodworking,gardening, sewing, scrap booking, cooking,
and various other crafts.
After the loss of my daughter, through cancer; I have learned to
appreciate life for all that it offers. I try to live my life according to
the words of Horace "Cease to inquire what the future has in store and
take as a gift whatever the day brings forth" Faith, Positive Attitude,
and Hope allow me to be who I am. I am truly blessed to be teaching your  
children and helping them to be proud of who they are and will become.

Children are all different and should strive to be their best them!
