All About Mrs. Gnew 

    Welcome to Second Grade Allstars! I am so excited about being your teacher this year. My name is Trisha Gnew and this will be my sixth year at Anderson Elementary but my eighth 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 graduated in May 2015 from the University of North Texas in Denton, TX. I also graduated from UNT in December 2020 with my Masters Degree in Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction. 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. Jacob and I live in Wylie with our one-year-old son, James. We are currently expecting our second child. Eden or Carter will be born in September. We have two dogs- Maddie and Archie. I love to craft during my free time. As a family, 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 can't wait to have a successful year with you and your student. 


    *I will be out of the classroom on maternity leave tentatively beginning August 31, 2022. During my absence, your students will have an amazing sub. We have been in contact several times and will continue to be to ensure your students' learning and well-being is a top priority. My return date is TBD at this time, but you will be notified of a definite schedule, contact information, and more very soon*
