Hi, my name is Gwen Black. I am a pre-k teacher at Lamar County HeadStart. I have been teaching for seventeen 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 9 years old who attends Aikin Elementary School. They are in the fourth grade and lovesd to play football, basketball and baseball. Their names are Kyce and Keiston and a little princess named Kambri who is 3 years old.. Let me tell you, these handsome princes and beautiful princess are my heart beat and keep me on my toes. They are my sunshine on a cloudy day.
My philosophy of teaching is molding love and respect for all students. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as individuals and to be the best they can be. I firmly believe ALL students can do all things through Christ who strengthen them. 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 ”We may all be different, but in this class we grow together because the future of the world is in this classroom.”.
