Welcome to Mrs. O'Dell's Class.

I am so excited to be your child's fourth grade Math/Science teacher this year. I was raised in Conroe, Texas and graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Early Childhood - 4th grade). This will be my sixth year here at Meador Elementary. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me. It's the best way for me to get back with you as quickly as possible.
