About Mrs. Roberts
Welcome to kindergarten! My name is Elizabeth Roberts and I am so excited to begin my 6th year as a kindergarten teacher. I was born and raised in Houston but found my home in Austin after graduating from the University of Texas at Austin (hook ‘em!) where I received a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am ESL and TAG certified and have completed category 1, 2, and 3 trainings for the International Baccalaureate program. I am beyond thrilled to join the UP Panther family this year!
My husband and I relocated to Dallas this summer and have enjoyed exploring all that Dallas has to offer. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, reading, spending time with friends and family, and cheering on the Longhorns. After travelling to Thailand last year for my honeymoon, I caught the travel bug and love to travel whenever possible!
Teaching kindergarten is my passion and I love creating the foundation students need to be successful readers, writers, and problem solvers. I have spent the last 5 years teaching at IB schools with a focus on student inquiry and the development of lifelong learners. My teaching philosophy is centered on the idea of growth for ALL students. Each child comes into my classroom with different strengths and abilities and it is my goal to push each child to their full potential. I strive to instill a growth mindset in my students and am looking forward to seeing all that they accomplish this year. It’s going to be a fun-filled, memorable year of learning and growing together!
