Mrs. Landry's Land of Learning

A place dedicated to learning for ALL students!

About Mrs. Landry

I teach in a small school district in East Texas and I love it! I have been teaching for the past 7 years and I’m still going strong! My first four years were spent in 2nd grade and I treasured that experience so much. There’s something about that age group that is just so neat to watch- they are still so young and wanting to please you as well as be outright loving and yet becoming independent thinkers and learners. Watching them make this transition is a real treat. I have a special place in my heart for that age group (although my mother would say I have a special place in my heart for ALL kids…hmmm…maybe!).

But after my daughter was born, I decided I did not have enough new stuff going on that I just HAD to add a new grade level on top of that! While my first year was a rough transition as I was learning motherhood as well a whole new teaching mind set, it was definitely worth it! I get to watch my little ones make connections and start reading! How cool is that?! It’s awesome! To be honest, first grade is what I thought I always wanted to teach from a young age as it was the grade level usually associated with learning to read. Kindergarten now encourages that too but a lot of students need first grade to put what Kindergarten started into place and then BAM! They become readers!

When I’m not teaching, I’m a wife and a mother to a loving, high-spirited 3 year old. My husband is the ultimate support group and the one who keeps me in check. Without him, I probably would have burned out long ago. As well as drowned in yards of lamination! He’s the best laminator cutter there is! Our daughter keeps us on our toes and is the light of our lives. She loves to sing, dance, read, draw, paint, swing, swim, watch Disney movies, slide, and so much more. We hope give her a sibling in the future but right now we’re just enjoying her. Throw in an old black and white dog named Shadeaux and you’ve got my crazy household!
