1st Grade
Welcome to my page!!  My name is Kathy Spencer and I am a first grade teacher at CC Hardy Elementary and have been with the Willis Independent School District for 13 years.  I graduated from LeTourneau University with a degree in Elementary Education (EC - 6).  
My husband and I have 4 children, 1 son-in-law, 2 granddaughters and 3 dogs.  Our oldest daughter is a nurse and her and her husband, who is a teacher,  have our youngest granddaughter, who is two.  Our second child, a Haz/Mat responder, has our oldest granddaughter, who is seven.   Our third child works for Southwest Airlines, eventually wanting to be a pilot.  Our youngest child is finishing up her Sophomore year at Texas A&M - Corpus Christi, with dreams of opening her own dance studio.  
Reading is so important in 1st grade and our students need as much practice as they can get.  I have several activities (attachment) on the Homework page that will allow for extra practice with sight words, high frequency words, and math fluency.  I have several websites listed on the link page that will also help with Reading and Math.  I will be adding more activities for summer practice!
