Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Dana Layne. I'm a second-grade reading and writing teacher. I've been teaching in Waller since 2016, my entire career. I spent my first year as a 4th-grade writing teacher and have been in 2nd grade ever since. I love this age group because there is so much growth at this age. They really start to become who they are as a student, and they become a lot more independent. I'm passionate about reading and writing because when I was an elementary student, I really struggled with these subjects. I try my best to make it fun and interesting for all students. My philosophy, simply put, is to just try your best! If you are willing to try, then you're willing to grow.
I graduated from Texas State University, 'Eat 'em up cats!', with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I grew up in Sugar Land, and attended schools in FBISD.
The best ways to communicate with me are through the Class Dojo app and email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns!
I am very excited for the new year! Go Bulldogs!
