• Hello, my name is Lorna Auten.  I have been teaching for twenty-one years.  I began my teaching career at White Settlement.  I taught 1st grade for four years.  When I came to Bryson, I taught 3rd grade one year, then second grade  for 10 years. This is my 6th year teaching 1st grade at Bryson.  I love 1st graders and am so excited to teach this age.
     
    I am married to a wonderful man, Opie, 35 years this year!  We have four great children.  My oldest Collin graduated from TCU, is a baseball coach and expecting a baby in December!  Jena-Claire received her doctorate from Texas Tech and teaches at Southlake Medical Academy. Carder is a Texas Tech graduate working on his teaching career.  Kaitlyn, my baby and her husband are expecting their 1st baby in November!  I am a proud mother and very excited to be a grandmother.
     
     
    My classroom is a place of learning and fun!  I have high expectations for each student.  I expect each student to show respect and to be polite to each other as we have a great learning experience.  My students are important to me and I hope they have a wonderful year in first grade!
