Mrs. Dora Jarrell

                                   WELCOME! to an EXCITED 2018-2019 school year!!

My name is Dora Jarrell, 3rd grade teacher at BOWIE ELEMENTARY !

 It is with great pleasure to WELCOME you and your child to my classroom this year. However, I would love to share some facts about myself.                                            I have my associates in Early Child Development and my Bachelor of Science(BS) in Early Childhood Education  from the University of Texas A&M International. I have taught in the Elementary grade for 9 years, though  this will be my first year teaching at Bowie Elementary. I have also taught at private schools as a Pre-K and Kinder teacher for 10 years. Over the course of my teaching years, I have taken many hours of professional development in order to meet each child's individual needs.

 I  was born, raised  and lived in Laredo, Texas  for 45 years. My family and I currently moved to San Marcos and we are excited to start our new chapter in our life.          I am a PROUD mom of a beautiful daughter name Megan Jarrell who will be graduating from Texas State University this school year and my handsome son named Allen Jarrell  who is currently serving the United State Marines Ooh-Rah! I am also a PROUD wife of a retired police officer of 28 years and a Marine of 8 years.

I LOVE teaching young curious minds! My mission as a teacher is to help children discover the joy of learning, and to help each child develop a strong belief in his or her own ability. I want them to do their best and to have a sense of pride in doing their personal best. It is also of primary importance to me that my students appreciate and respect other people' differences.

 Together we can make this year the best year possible for your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or come up for a scheduled conference. My conference times and days are on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8:15- 9:00. The school phone number is 512-.393-6200.  

Looking forward to a FUN AND SUCCESSFUL school year!!

-Mrs. Jarrell
