About Ms. Savage

Hi, Panthers!


I was born in Dallas and have lived here most of my life. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, and a Master’s degree from the University of North Texas, both in Elementary Education. This is my 30th year of teaching, my 21st year at UP. I taught second and third grade before coming to UP.


I have two of the cutest rescue dogs, Stella and Sabrina, who entertain me with their many antics. When I’m not playing with my pups, I love to read, travel (especially to the beach), go to Dallas Stars games, and spending time with family and friends.


First grade is such an exciting year! The students grow so much, both academically and socially! It is such an amazing thing to watch, seeing changes almost daily! I hope to teach my students to have a love of reading. I want to help them become confident learners, willing to keep trying when things are difficult. I believe communication between home and school is very important. Please feel free to contact me by email, or by sending a note.
