Mrs. Pannell's First Grade Class

Educational History:  

My name is Courtney Pannell, and I will be your child's first grade teacher!  This is my eighth year teaching and my sixth year teaching first grade.  This is my first year at Sam Rayburn, and I am so excited about being a Rebel!  I perviously taught at Bonham ISD.  First grade is my absolute favorite grade to teach!  I have taught second grade before, so I know what your child should be able to do by the time they enter second grade.  


I went to college at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, which is the number one teacher's college for the state.  I graduated in 2008 with a bachelors degree in childhood education. 
Personal Information:
