Hello parents!
I am so happy to have your student in my class this year! 
This is my second year teaching, and I'm excited to be teaching Kindergarten again! I graduated from Sam Houston State University in December of 2016 with my Bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies. I am currently pursing my Master's degree in Instructional Leadership from Sam Houston State University.  I'm eager to work with you and your child this year, together we will have a successful school year and building a relationship with you and your child!
 
When I'm not teaching I love spending time with my family, especially my brother who is a Senior at Stephen F. Austin State University (Eat Em Up Kats!!) Our sibling rivalry keeps things interesting in our family. Over the summer I got engaged so I will soon be Mrs. McDowell, and I also got a Boston Terrier puppy named Grace! A few other things I enjoy doing in my spare time is crafting, painting, wood working, and vinyl. I am always available and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year (also be sure to sign up for remind!).  I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your child more as the year progresses. 
It's going to be a great year!
 
Decker Strong, We Can, We Will!
 
Ms. Ryder
