Mrs. Cullen's Bio

Hello and welcome to my Bio!
     I have 27 years of teaching experience, 16 of those years at Ballinger Elementary as a reading and writing teacher in the fourth grade.  Eight years ago, I made the move to junior high to teach English.  What a great decision because I love working with junior high students.  They are a blast to teach!  Then last year I was given the opportunity to try something new at the junior high:  drones and robotics.  I'm not a gearhead, but teaching critical thinking in a hands-on elective is right up my ally. My expectations for the students are high,  so we work hard in class...always.  We write code, trouble-shoot, practice the iterative process, loads of teamwork, and much more.  We will learn a lot about ourselves and our ability to persevere.  Of course, through it all, we have fun.
    I live in the country with my husband, Steven.  We have two daughters, Haley and Emma.  Both are graduates of Ballinger.  I have one precious granddaughter, Layla.   I enjoy being outdoors, as I'm an avid gardener.  During the cooler months, you can find me watching NFL football.  I am a big Steelers' fan, who is married to a die-hard Cowboys' fan.  Yep, that's right! (I'm up one Super Bowl.) 
As always, Go Bearcubs!
