I am Mrs. Byrd 6th grade teacher at Tindley Genesis and I am here to tell you a little about myself. I am 29 years old and married with two kids. My oldest is a girl whose name is Adyson and my youngest is a boy and his name is Hyat. My husbands name is Tyme. I also have 3 dogs, 2 birds, and a baby turtle! I graduated from University of Phoenix where I completed my associates degree in Psychology and my bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I completed two years online to get my associates degree and then finished the remaining 2 to 3 years going on campus here in Indy to get my bachelors. I also began my journey to get my Masters degree through Purdue for Curriculum and Instruction just last year. I will be done with that in October! So far I have taught 2nd grade, 5th grade math and science, and 6th grade math and science (going on 3 years). This will be my 5th year teaching and my 4th year at Tindley. I have taught math and science the last three years at Tindley and will continue in that this year! I have also had the opportunity to be on leadership team, lead teacher for 5th/6th grades, and mentor. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and your students! Let's Have A GREAT Year!!
