LIFE PRINCIPLE OF THE WEEK--SELF-DISCIPLINE


Definition: SELF-DISCIPLINE--The ability you have to control and motivate yourself to stay on track.

TEACHER OF THE WEEK

Audrey Pruitt--4th grade Teacher

I have been a teacher at Chavez for 4 years. This is my first year to teach 4th grade. I taught 5th grade for 12 years here in Little Elm at Brent, Powell and Chavez. Before moving to Texas, I taught 3rd and 5th grade in California. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelors in Elementary Education. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in the 2nd grade and can't imagine doing anything else.


I am married to my high school sweetheart, David, and we have 3 boys. Alex is a 4th grader in Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Harvey's classes. Andrew is a 1st grader in Mrs. Trimble's class and Austin, who is 2, goes to Child Care at Zellars. We have lived in Little Elm for almost 13 years and love it here.


In my spare time, I love to read and play with my boys. We love camping and going to water parks. We have an English Bulldog named Waffles.
