Welcome to Mrs. Mannen's class website! I am super excited to get this school year started. I first started teaching in December 1998 in Klein ISD where I taught and fell in love with kindergarten! I taught in Klein ISD for 7 years. In 2002, I married my husband, Mike. I traveled to Klein for a few years before I decided I wanted to make the move to Magnolia ISD to be closer to home. In 2005, I was lucky enough to get a job teaching first grade here at the wonderful Nichols Sawmill Elementary. I immediately fell in love with the students and families of NSE. I continued to teach first grade for 5 years. Then I moved up to second grade, and again eventually moved up to third grade! This will be my second year back in 1st grade. I love the eagerness to learn that this age group has and can not wait to see their growth this year.
My husband and I dated for 6 years before getting married in 2002. We have two fur babies, Poppy (cat) and Toby (dog). The both of them are very spoiled! My husband and I enjoy spending time outdoors, whether it is hunting or fishing or just working in the yard! When I am not teaching or with my husband, I am usually shopping, spending time outdoors, crafting, decorating, going for a quick run, or spending time with my family and friends.
I cannot wait for this school year to get started! I love watching the students grow throughout the year and I cannot wait to celebrate their growth with you! It is most definitely a team effort, parent and teacher, working together for the success of your child! Please know that you can contact me anytime with questions or concerns, my classroom door is always open!
