• Hello and welcome Mrs. Silmon's Kindergarten Webpage!
     
    I am so excited about teaching your children this year.
     
    My philosophy of teaching is to have high expectations for every child who walks through my door. Through my implementation of this philosophy I've consistently been able to get my students to excel academically each year. 
     
    I'm a graduate of Texas Southern University with a BA degree in Elementary Education with a Minor in Psychology . I am certified in  Kindergarten - 8th Grade , Special Education , Early Childhood , and Gifted and Talented.  This is my 28th year in HISD where I have enjoyed teaching and watching my students learn to their highest  potential .
     
    Here at MacGregor Elementary, my students participate in a GT Project that focuses on 3 artists and gives the children an opportunity to create their own gallery of art, showing their work on various mediums.  I work hard to keep my kids motivated and challenged on a daily basis and prepared, not only for first grade, but for the rest of their educational careers!
     
    I look forward to working with your child and putting forth my best effort to prepare them to be the best scholar they can be!
