To 4th Grade!
I began teaching Pre Kindergarten children when I was in my early 20’s and knew that I wanted a career in working with children and their families. From that time until the early 1990’s, I owned and/or operated Early Childhood Facilities here in Amarillo and in Perryton, Texas. In 1990, I returned to college to obtain my degree in Social Work and Sociology. I, then worked for the Suicide Crisis Center and the Domestic Violence Shelter providing counseling, workshops, and intervention. In 1997, I came to teach at Landergin Elementary. It is awesome to be teaching at the very school that I attended when I was in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. I have taught pre kindergarten, Kindergarten, and am currently teaching second grade. I am married to Mike McAnear. I have two wonderful daughters, a grand daughter named Halee and we will be blessed in August with our grandson, Carter. My favorite hobbies are playing with Halee, quilting, camping, reading and spending time by the lakes of Colorado catching trout.
