Mrs. Terry-English Teacher

My Education

I graduated from Jacksboro High School and went to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX. While at MSU, I changed majors three times and then chose to become a teacher. I graduated with a major in English and a minor in psychology.

I worked several jobs going through college. After I finished college, I worked for eight months at James V. Allred, a correctional facility outside Wichita Falls because there were no teaching jobs available in the area. In 2000, I took a job teaching seventh grade language arts. I taught seventh grade for eight years. I taught sixth grade reading for a year and then reading extension for three years. Then I moved to inclusion and high school special education for three years. I have joined you at Buckholts to teach English again. I am very excited to be here.

My Family and Hobbies

I was married in 1994 before graduating college. My grades increased after I was married as due most college students. I had Ethan in 2001, Kelly in 2003, and Rebecca and Landon, the twins, in 2005.

I have raised and shown rabbits since 1987. I went through an extensive training program and passed two tests to become an American Rabbit Breeders Association licensed judge in 1999. We have three barns full of several different breeds of rabbits. Each of my children care for their own breeds.

My Expectations

I expect everyone to show respect in my classroom. I want everyone to greet me upon entering my class. I want everybody to be on time. I need assignments to be turned in on time. If you have a problem, I need to be informed, so I can meet your needs. Don’t wait till you have a failing grade, we’ve conferenced, I have had to call your parents, or I’ve filled out a referral. Insubordination will not be tolerated and will receive a direct referral. I will call your parents later. I will have tutorials after school to help any of you. I am one of your junior class sponsors, and I am also the one act play sponsor for junior high and high school.

****Number 1, I am here to help you achieve any educational goal you set this year. If you have any worries about your educational background, let me help you. That’s MY JOB! I hope we have a GREAT year! If you have any pertinent questions, I am here for you.
