Welcome to Mrs. Edmiston's Class

Welcome Parents!
 
I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself.  I am a native Texan.  I grew up in Kingwood, Texas and attended Texas A&M University upon graduating from high school.  After finishing my education at A&M I worked in the corporate world in Human Resources. I lived in Houston, Austin, La Jolla, California, and the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  About a decade into my career, I had the desire to make more of a difference.  This is when I made the bold leap to start my career as an educator.  I went back to school at the University of North Texas and earned my teaching certificate.  I began my teaching in Keller, Texas where I taught First Grade and Third Grade.  I worked at the same school there for nine years.  
 
In 2014, I moved from Keller to the Willis area to marry my high school sweetheart and thus joined the Meador team.  I have been a Wildkat for three years now and am happy to be apart of such a great family of educators.  
 
My husband and I each a one daughter from previous marriages; one is thirteen years old and the other is seven years old.  We also have three "furry babies" - two dogs and one cat.  We are a busy family as I know most of you are too!
 
In closing, it is important to me that you know I work very hard to provide your child with a safe, comfortable, and inviting classroom.  I teach the kids that we are a family and we treat each other the way we would like to be treated.  I also challenge the kids and have high, but reasonable expectations because I believe each and every child can succeed and meet those expectations.  
 
I am so happy to have your child in my class and I look forward to partnering with you to help your child have the best school year possible.

STAAR Benchmarks

Next week, on Monday and Tuesday, your child will be taking a PRACTICE STAAR test (we call it a Benchmark).
 
Monday will be Math 
and 
Tuesday will be Reading.  
 
I simply wanted to make you aware so that your kiddo could get a good night's sleep on Sunday and Monday nights and feel prepared and calm.  My philosophy is to make them feel as confident and comfortable as possible.  
 
Also, please have them dress in comfy clothing.  I also recommend having them bring a sweatshirt or jacket (something they can put on and remove easily) in the event they get cold.
 
Finally, we will provide a snack and a water bottle for them to enjoy during the test.  Your child is welcome to bring their own snacks and drinks as long as they are as follows:
  • Dry - pretzels, Goldfish, and crackers are best.
  • Nothing that is colorful, juicy or greasy - (like cheese flavored chips,  fruit or greasy chips is a BAD IDEA.  They can ruin the test materials and then may not be able to be scored)
  • Drinks - only CLEAR liquids with lids (to prevent spills)  Water is best
​If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks!​
