About Mrs. Daugherty

Hello! This is my 9th year teaching 5th grade at Life School Red Oak. This will be my 7th year teaching Science, but I have also taught Reading, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I majored in English Language Arts and Reading (Grades 4-8). I have certifications in English as a Second Language (ESL), and Generalist (4-8). My favorite part of teaching is seeing my former students when they come back to visit me! It is encouraging to know I have made a difference, but I know that wouldn't be possible without such supportive parents, administrators, and the students themselves being eager to learn. I love my job! My husband Christopher and I just celebrated our third anniversary. On May 27, 2016, God blessed us with our precious Ella.  She has completely stolen our hearts!  We also love to spend time with family, go shopping, and watch movies.

Please subscribe to my page so you can be updated any time I add a post. This year is going to be awesome!
