Third Grade-Lidey's Family

Hi! Welcome to third grade. My name is Mrs. Lidey and I will be your student's Language Arts and Social Studies teacher this year. This is my thirteenth year at Decker Prairie Elementary. I have taught first grade for ten years, one year of second grade and one year teaching third grade. I love teaching and cannot imagine doing anything else. I graduated with honors from Sam Houston State University as an academics study major with a minor in early childhood education. I love teaching our future and look forward to working with all of my students and families this year. Working as a team allows us to change the world one imagination at a time!
