Welcome to Ms. Boyte's 5th Grade Class! I'm so excited to be your teacher for Reading, Writing and Social Studies this year! I can't wait to learn all about you. Let me start out by telling you a little bit about me.
I wasn't born in Texas. It took me 13 years to get here! Before I moved here I lived in several different states and even a different country! I've lived in Germany, New Jersey, Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, and Texas. I went to high school in Plano and attended The University of Texas at Dallas for my degree in Child Development and teaching certification. I'm back in school this fall working on my master's degree in administration from the University of North Texas.
My family and I are so happy to call Allen our home. We have lived here for 10 years and absolutely love it! I have three kids. Nick is going to be a junior this year, and he plays football. Alyssa is going to 8th grade at Curtis, and she plays volleyball and is a cheerleader. Reagan will be in 3rd grade this year, and she plays soccer. If I'm not at Boyd, I'm usually running them from one sport to another or watching a game or practice. When we're not doing that, we like to spend time with family and friends, watch movies, and play games.
Some of my favorites:
Food: Ice cream and chips and salsa
Restaurants: Chuy's, Chipotle, Chick-Fil-A
Stores: Charming Charlie, Target
Sports: Football, basketball, soccer, volleyball (and whatever sports my kids are playing)
Teams: The Ohio State Buckeyes (National Champions 2014!!!), Dallas Cowboys, Allen Eagles, Kentucky Wildcats (and whatever teams my kids are on!)
Grade: Fifth Grade!!!
That's a little bit about me. I'm looking forward to finding out all about you!
