Hi! My name is Lyndsay Byrd and I teach third grade at Hughes Elementary. I went to Abilene Christian University. This year is my thirteenth year teaching. I taught a Reading Recovery program in Johnson City my first year, then I moved to NISD where I taught Kindergarten for three years and first grade for seven years. This is my second year in third grade and I am loving it!! I have been here at Hughes Elementary since it opened!
I love teaching and I believe school should be a place that each child looks forward to. It is important for me to create an atmosphere where every child feels loved, comfortable and successful. Each year is an adventure and no two years are ever the same, which makes it exciting to come to work. I love to have fun and I believe that you should laugh and enjoy life every single day.
