Hi, my name is Gwen Black. I am a pre-k teacher at Lamar County HeadStart. I have been teaching for twelve years. I graduated from Texas A & M University-Commerce in 2007. I have a Bachelor of Science Interdisciplinary Studies in Early childhood through 4th grade teaching certification.
I am blessed to have a beautiful daughter named Raven and son-in-law named Kendrick. They are my joy, my light, my heart and the apple of my eye. They are the wind beneath my wings. I am blessed to have twin grandboys who are 5 years old who will be attending Aikin Elementary School this year. I am so excited. I tell you, these handsome boys are my heart beat and keep me on my toes. Also, we are expecting a beautiful baby girl to arrive in January and to be a part of our new edition.
My philosophy of teaching is molding love and respect for my students. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as individuals. My role as a teacher is to give students the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. A love of learning is the ultimate gift I can give to my students.
My motto is "Get Involved." Parents are teachers too.
