Mrs. Gyves

Hello wonderful students and parents!  

I am very happy to be at Sugarland and excited to teach ELL 2nd grade.  I am originally from Illinois, but I lived and studied in different parts of the world.  I am Mexican-American with a splash of other cultures. I hold degrees in Early Childhood Education, Foreign Language and English Writing; my best learning experiences have been in caring and respectful settings where I was able to grow, have fun, be challenged, learn from my mistakes, and truly be myself. I strive to bring that environment to my students so, that they too, can rip the benefits of an exceptional education; which I believe everyone deserves.

In my free time I enjoy writing, dancing and most of all traveling. I feel it is a gift to the spirit and mind. I also like to explore nature by hiking, biking, or walking with my kind and beautiful four-legged companion, Lucky, a Saint Bernard mix that loves people and treats!

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you! Feel free to drop me a note anytime.
