About Mrs. Cullen

Welcome to Mrs. Cullen's Webpage       
        I have 22 years of teaching experience, 16 of those years at Ballinger Elementary as a reading and writing teacher in fourth grade.  Two years ago, I wanted to refresh my teaching style and try something new, so I made the move to junior high.  What a great choice; I love the junior high campus and the students.  Seeing how the students mature and develop from elementary kids to middle schools students has been a real pleasure.
        I love teaching and I love kids.  I work everyday to build relationships and make a connection with students that will aide in the learning process.  I always try to teach with compassion.  Believe me when I tell you that I've had a few "bad" teachers in my lifetime, and I understand the impact that can have on a child.  Those experiences drive me to be the best teacher I can be.  I hope to make a positive difference in your student's life.  I know that we will have a fantastic year as we transition and navigate junior high life together.
I live in the country with my husband Steven and our two daughters, Haley and Emma. The students quickly get to know my labrador retriever, Blondie, as I write about her antics often, as well as our cat, Cookie.  I enjoy being outdoors, whether I am gardening and landscaping, playing hoops in the driveway with my family, or spending time at the lake.  I love waterskiing and swimming.  During the cooler months, you can find me watching NFL football.  I am a big Steelers' fan who is married to a diehard Cowboys' fan.   Yep, that's right! (I'm up one Super Bowl.)
