About Mrs. Hazen
My name is Priscilla Hazen and this will be my 7th year at UP! Previously I have been the library instructional assistant, receptionist, and now currently the ESL K-4 teacher. I graduated from Texas State University with a BA in Elementary Education specializing in Reading. I have taught both Pre-K and 1st grade with over 25 years in education. I look forward to a great year, and being back in the classroom!
I have four daughters, my eldest are triplets (Kristin, Claire and Katherine) and my youngest (Rosie) just graduated from the University of Mississippi. All four graduated from HPISD, and are alums of UP Elementary. My husband Scott and I have lived in Dallas for 27 years. My hobbies include reading, cooking, and enjoy spending time with my three precious pups, Finn a Maltipoo, Louis a Wire Fox Terrier, and Otto a Goldendoodle.
My goal as an ESL teacher is to greatly improve the lives of those around me, to be an example of high integrity and class, to be a great communicator, to uplift and inspire. To make the teaching experience fun for the students as well as for myself.
