Hi! I'm Gayle Edwards, first grade teacher at Hico Elementary School. I've been married to my husband, Blake, for 5 years. Our son, Fischer, is 3 years old and quite a handful! This will be my 1st year at Hico Elementary and my 6th year in the education profession. I graduated from Tarleton State University in 2010 with my Bachelors Degree. My husband also graduated from Tarleton and is in sales with an environmental services company. In addition to our day jobs, we also raise livestock.
It is a great passion of mine to work with and teach children. Every year I'm so excited to meet and form relationships with each of my new students. My style of teaching includes helping students to become self-sufficient, confident and to take ownership of their own learning. We spend a lot of time with hands on activities--I firmly believe we learn by doing!
