Dear Parents and Guardians,

    My name is Anya Stroup, (Str- ou- p), but my in-laws pronounce as Strap. I am extremely excited to be your child’s first grade teacher! Let me tell you a little bit about me. I was born in Russia and lived there until I was twelve years old. I have loved to work with children since I was very young, and was inspired to be a teacher when I became a Kindergarten teacher’s assistant in tenth grade. While still in high school, I started working at a horse ranch that gave therapeutic riding lessons to children with disabilities. To put myself through college I started working at childcare centers. I have worked with different ages from toddlers to after school children. I graduated summa cum laude from A&M Commerce in December of 2016 with a bachelors’ degree in Interdisciplinary studies EC-6.

    I have been married to my husband for five years and we’ve been together for total of nine years. We have two sweet children; my daughter Alexa who is three, and my son Ethan who is sixteen months!

    During free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing and basically anything that involves family and outdoors! Our whole family is big college football fans, go Aggies! I am also a big Green bay Packers fan.

    Working as a team, I am confident your child will have a fun filled, successful year.


    Mrs. Anya Stroup
