Fourth Grade Team Leader

Amanda Herrera Bio

I am beyond excited to a part of the RJE family as a 4th grade ELAR teacher.  Each year of my teaching career has led me to this wonderful place- first as an English teacher in a small town of Ecuador, then as a middle school Writing teacher in Brownfield, Texas, and most recently as a 4th Grade Writing teacher in Lubbock, Texas.  My husband and I have recently moved to McKinney (where I graduated from McKinney Boyd HS in 2011) to be closer to family and finally settle into a place to call “home.”  We have a sweet border collie who goes by the name of Pickle, as well as her counterpart: Mo the cat.  Whenever possible, we love to play board games, eat breakfast foods, and go camping (sometimes all three together!). Above all, I am so thrilled to be a part of this community and this campus!  Let’s go Jaguars!
