All About Mrs. Gnew 

    Welcome to Second Grade Allstars, I am so excited to be your teacher this year. My name is Trisha Gnew and this will be my fourth year at Anderson Elementary but my sixth year of being a teacher. I taught Second Grade for two years in Plano ISD before moving to Anderson to teach Third Grade for three years. I am so excited to be back in Second Grade. It truly is my favorite grade to teach. I graduted in May 2015 from the University of North Texas in Denton, TX. I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction from UNT and I am aiming for a December 2020 graduation. I attended Allen ISD from Pre-K to 12th grade. I was a student at Anderson during part of my Allen ISD journey, so being able to be back to teach is such a neat experience. As a teacher, I truly believe parents and teachers are a team, please stay in contact with me to ensure the best experience for your student. I cannot wait to get to know you and your child this year. 

    I am married to my husband, Jacob. We got married on November 24, 2019, so you may know me as Ms. O'Neill. Jacob and I live in Wylie and have two dogs- Maddie and Archie. Maddie is a four year old Blue Heeler and Archie is a two year old Border Collie Mix. You will see a lot of Maddie and Archie videos and pictures this year. I love to craft during my free time. Jacob and I are currently rennovating our home to better match our style. We both love to create decor and work around our home. We love to travel and spend time with our family and friends. 

    Second grade is such a fun year! We will explore many new topics and begin to prepare for third grade. This year will be a challenge for your student, but I will be there each step of the way to make this transition as smooth as possible. If you need anything at all, please contact me. I understand our new normal is going to be different but together we will make this year a success!
