About Mrs. Gentry

I am so thrilled to start another year of second grade. I love encouraging children to grow in their learning and reach their goals. Teaching is a passion of mine that continues to thrive within me each year. I get excited about all the things that second graders get to learn and the amazing novels that we get to delve into together.

I am from Friendswood, TX. It's a suburb of Houston that reminds me of Round Rock. I ventured off to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin. There I received my BS in Applied Learning and Development with a Minor in Psychology/Child Psychology. Throughout and after college I volunteered with various organizations including Rosedale and Children's Hospital of Austin. After college I nannied, tutored, subbed, and worked at Sylvan Learning Center until I started teaching Pre-K at Forest Creek Elementary. I spent four years teaching third grade and then switched to second grade. This is my twelfth year of teaching and my sixth year of teaching second grade.

Outside of school, I stay very active. If it's outside, I'm there! I enjoy wake surfing, running, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I love UT Football and "How 'Bout Them Cowboys!" My husband Johnathan and I will celebrate our third wedding anniversary this year. Our daughter Adalind was born this last March, and we are having a blast watching her learn and grow every day. I have a eight year old stepson, Brayden, who constantly lights up our lives. In addition, I get to spend every day helping my second graders to be prepared for third grade and have a lot of fun in the process!

Thank you for sharing your kiddos with me this year! I hope to inspire all my students to become lifelong learners!
