Hey ya’ll! My name is Whitney Haig and I am your child’s 4th grade teacher! This will be my tenth year to teach at Nichols Sawmill Elementary and my fifteenth year to teach! I taught kindergarten for one year, 2nd grade for thirteen years and now I’m teaching 4th grade! I am a little nervous about being with the BIG kids, but I know my passion, love and desire to teach will be the same as it was with the little kids. I absolutely love what I do! I graduated from University of North Texas in Denton, Texas in 2003. I knew I wanted to teach and make a difference in children's lives since I was a little girl!
I married my high school sweetheart, Ryan, and we have been married for 14 years! We started dating our Junior year in High School and we’ve been inseparable ever since. We have two little boys named Ryland and Rhyder. Ryland is 5 and is in Kindergarten at NSE and Rhyder is 1. They are both amazing and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. Ryland loves playing baseball, soccer and now swimming. Thank goodness he learned how to swim this summer! While Rhyder loves to imitate whatever his older brother is doing. We are constantly saying, “NO” to Rhyder because he thinks he’s 5. When I’m not spending time with “my boys” you can find me at Crossfit Commanders working out(Yes, I drank the Crossfit kool-aid), cheering on the Houston Texans, shopping, traveling, spending time with friends and family!
I look forward to an amazing year with your child in 4th grade! I’m excited to learn and grow just like them this year. Thank you so much for trusting me and letting me spend the day with your precious baby.
