My name is Mrs. Wade and I am so excited to teach kindergarten at Decker Prairie! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your child’s teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.  


I moved to Texas from Mississippi when I was in junior high and attended Tomball schools until I graduated. I am the oldest of three! I have a younger brother, Sam, and younger sister, Savannah. In June of 2011 I married my best friend, Richard. We have a wonderful, happy little girl named Remington who just turned five this summer and is starting kindergarten here at Decker Prairie. We also have a fun and spunky little boy, Ryder, that will be one in October. 


After I graduated from Tomball High School I attended Lonestar College received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood. I taught Pre-K for five years then decided to go back to school. In 2009, I moved to Nacogdoches and went to Stephen F. Austin State University where I majored in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from SFA with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary  Studies in 2011. All through school I couldn’t wait to graduate and start teaching. This is my fifth year teaching at Decker Prairie Elementary. 


I have a fun filled year planned and am so excited to share it with you. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns.
