Dear Students and Families,

     I feel so blessed to be your sixth and seventh grade Reading & Language Arts teacher this year.  I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know you better as we embark on this journey together.  I count it a great privilege and calling to be your teacher, and my commitment to you is to always give my very best to inspire you to be your very best. 

     This year, you will be presented with many opportunities that will both challenge and prepare you for your future education and life.  I am excited to be a part of a team of great people that will help facilitate your learning and prepare you for whatever future endeavors your life may hold.  What you do today truly matters and will help shape the choices you have tomorrow, so let's begin this new school year with great anticipation and put our best effort forth to learn all that we can and to apply all that we learn.

     We will follow the 6th and 7th grade Reading/Language Arts requirements set forth by our TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.)  All school and district policies are to be followed in all our classrooms.  I have outlined a few policies that specifically apply to my students in each class syllabus I will give to each student the first week of class. Please go over this with your child, and send it back signed as soon as you can.  Thank you.

     If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write me at rwoodall@hubbardisd.org or call me at the school office, ((254) 576-2758.  I will put my cell phone number on the class syllabus.  My conference time is daily from 7:45 - 8:30 A.M., but I will gladly meet with you any time after school at your convenience.   I look forward to meeting you soon! Please come to our Hubbard ISD Open House this Thursday, August 24, 2017, with the elementary campus starting at 6 p.m. and the secondary campuses starting at 7 p.m.  Hope to see you all there!!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Woodall

P.S. Most of you know me, but for those who are new to Hubbard, I am including an "All About Me" write-up below.

 "All About Mrs. Woodall"

    Many of you are already familiar with who I am, but for those who do not know my background, I will take this opportunity to tell you a bit about myself.  I was born in Fairfield, Texas, moved to Denver, Colorado before my third grade year, and lived in Denver/Littleton until my junior year in college.  I attended Columbine High School and Colorado Women's College, where I majored in Elementary Education.  I moved to Austin, Texas at that time, and attended The University of Texas, where I graduated with a BA in 1984.
     I met and married the best guy in the world, Hubbard graduate, Ricky Woodall, in 1985, and we moved to Hubbard the next year.  After ten years, we were blessed with the birth of our son, Luke, in 1995.  He graduated from Hubbard High School in 2014 and completed his degree at MCC, in Waco.
     My husband has been a design engineer, after which time he became a youth pastor for five years at First Baptist Church, Hubbard, and then the pastor there for five more years.  At that time, we went overseas and served in Central Asia, where we spent almost six years.  We mainly worked with handicapped children and their families while there.  We enjoyed this experience very much, and have a great love for the people of that area.  Since returning, we have served three years at Navarro Mills Baptist Church, as Pastor and family, then were led back to Hubbard six years ago where my husband now serves again as Pastor of First Baptist Church.  
     Over the years, my teaching experience has included:  teaching 6th grade for one year at Dawson Elementary; teaching 5th and 6th graders for six years in a combined classroom setting at Corsicana Christian Academy; teaching 3rd grade at Hubbard Elementary for one year; then home-teaching my son, Luke for six years while overseas.  This will be my 11th year to teach at Hubbard ISD since our return to America.  I taught 5th grade until 2013, then moved to Hubbard Middle School where I currently teach 6th and 7th grade English/Language Arts and Reading.  I feel so privileged to teach at Hubbard ISD and consider teaching my calling in life.
     Some of my hobbies include singing, playing the guitar, camping, hiking, and enjoying nature.  I also enjoy teaching very much, and I count it a great blessing to be your child's teacher.
