My name is Melinda (Mindy) Flowers and this is my 11th year of teaching in public schools (this includes 1 year of substitute teaching on several different Diboll campuses.) and a total of 20 years after homeschooling my son as a stay at home mom. I've previously taught ESL Kindergarten at the 'old' Diboll Primary School and now I am back teaching many of the 'children of the children' I taught in the early 90's! :) I am now currently teaching Dual Language Prep Pre-K 4 with my team teacher, Mrs. Lesley Scott and I love it.
I was born in Davenport Iowa, but I grew up in and graduated from Lufkin High School in 1987. I then went on to Texas Tech University and then finished my degree in Early Childhood & Elementary Education at SFA in Nacogdoches. After graduation I moved to Cuernavaca, Morelos Mexico and lived with a host family in order to study in an intensive Spanish immersion program at Cemanahuac Educational Community College. It was one of the best experiences of my life and it lead me to get my ESL certification and work with the large population of bilingual students in the area, and now english speakers who want to learn spanish as well. It is truly where my heart is! :)
I am currently engaged to my wonderful fiance', Adam Shocklee. We own "Adam's Crawfish Shack" in Lufkin and have lots of fun running our business.
I have one amazing son, Logan, who is the love of my life and a SENIOR this year! I have also gained one awesome and talented step-daughter Ivy Nicole! She attends Southwest Texas State in San Marcos, TX as a theater and journalism major.
My hobbies are art, cooking, decorating, photography, Pinterest-ing, and football! GEAUX SAINTS!
I am already enjoying each and every one of your children! I welcome any questions or concerns you may have. Please feel free to contact me any time. My conference time at school is from 12:55-2:00 pm daily (M-F) and you can also contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for entrusting me with your child giving me the opportunity to teach and take care of your 'little blessings'. I know they mean the world to you, and they also do to me. :) We are going to have so much fun leaning and growing together! It's going to be a FANTASTIC YEAR!!
Kindest Regards... :) ~Ms. Mindy Flowers
