ABOUT MRS. GUENTER
This will be my second year teaching second grade and my seventh year teaching. I have previously taught kindergarten and first, and I have to admit, 2nd grade has become my most favorite grade teach! I graduated from THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS at Austin (HOOK 'EM HORNS!) with a bachelors in Applied Learning and Development. I have known from a young age that whatever I did in life, I wanted to work with children, and I truly believe being a teacher is my calling! To watch children learn and grow... to have the opportunity to instill in them a life long passion for learning...to see them overcome and celebrate successes in all that they do...to encourage and watch them have those "ah-ha!" moments... my "whys" are many, and I'd say I have the best job in the world! Outside of teaching, I love being a wife and mom! My husband's name is Brent and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Aubree and Lainee. We also have a dog named Emma and cat name Little Bit.
I am blessed to be your teacher this year and look forward to a great year together!
