About Mrs. Myers
Welcome to TAG! I am excited to begin my fourth year as the UP TAG Specialist. My journey in HPISD began as a Bradfield Elementary Fourth Grade teacher, and prior to that experience I taught in Plano ISD in both fourth grade and fifth grade classrooms. Graduating from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor Degree in Human Development and Family Studies and a Master Degree in Elementary Education, I quickly fell in love with extending the learning of my TAG students in the regular education classroom through differentiation practices. I followed this passion to learn more about how to challenge my students every moment of the day through the SMU Gifted/Talented Endorsement Program. That passion has become my role at UP which is to seek to open up opportunities for a challenging learning environment every moment of every day.
This summer has been quite eventful as my family welcomed our new baby girl, Merritt. Her big brother, Charlie, is overjoyed with his new role and proudly parades his baby sister in and out of his school. My husband and I aren’t sleeping much yet, but we are filled with love and all the baby cuddles we can handle.
I am excited to start this school year and meet the many new faces of my school family. Every student holds a special place in my heart and I strive to make every child feel loved and supported in the TAG classroom. I believe this makes taking risks in learning and significant growth possible. I look forward to partnering with you to build a challenging yet supportive environment that invites your child to grasp at opportunities to make great strides in learning.
