     I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University with a Bachelor of Behavioral Science degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading.

     I have taught 17 years in the Holland Primary.

     My husband of 30 years is Randy Evans. We have four children, Dessera, Stephen, Joshua and Caleb. We also have one grandson who is amazing!  

     I enjoy reading, singing, cooking and gardening.



Favorite Quote:

“A child’s mind isn’t a blank slate; it’s more of a jungle.  Each time a parent helps a toddler read, the child is walked through this jungle from one side to the other.  Trip after trip, a seemingly impossible passage becomes a well-worn path.  Children sent to kindergarten skipping merrily along this path to literacy fare far better than those sent to school with machetes.”  Keith Mastrion

Behavior Chart Information

Each student has a pocket in our Behavior Chart  with six color cards in it. We begin each day with a green card. If your student still has a green card at the end of the day, you will know that he/she  had a great day. If your student does not obey our class rules, I will change the color cards, see what happens below. However, if I see your student do something really good or even awesome the color card will get changed to purple or pink. Below is our behavior color chart:

Pink card: Your student did something extraordinary!

Purple card: Your student is following our social contract and has been caught doing something good.

Green card:  Your student had a great day!

Yellow card: I gave your student a warning and we have referred to our social contract. 

Orange card: I gave your student  another warning and then I will go through these questions with your student:

What are you doing?

What are you supposed to be doing? 

Are you doing it? 

What are you going to do about it? 

What is going to happen if you break our social contract again?

If this is a repeat offense your child will get a logical consequence and a note home.

Red card: If a red card is given that means the appropriate action was not taken and the student will visit with the principal and have logical consequences given.

Sometimes, if the teacher catches me doing something good, I will get a “star” ticket! If I get 10 of these, I get a surprise. Here are the rules I must follow:

  1. Be kind to others
  2. Respect other people’s things
  3. Listen and do
  4. Obey all safety rules

We will also be creating our classroom social contract together as a group at the beginning of school so the above list is the main rules for every Kindergarten classroom.

I get one sticker every day for returning my folder (signed). When my sticker board is full, I get to choose a surprise out of the surprise bag.

E = 93%-100%

S = 85%-92%

Any homework should take your child no more than 5 to 10 minutes to complete and math homework will need to be returned the next day. We want parents to help their Kindergartner with their homework, it is not meant for them to do all by themselves. They will need the instructions read to them and if they need help, please help them. Thank you!

Birthday Party Guidelines

We do celebrate birthdays! Please feel free to send cupcakes or cookies to celebrate your child’s birthday. You can send enough for the entire Kindergarten or enough for your child’s classroom. We usually celebrate at snack time which is at 2:00 in the afternoon, right after getting up from nap. You can bring the food to the office and they will get it to us or you can bring it yourself at 2:00 in the afternoon.
