Meet Mrs. Ricerrice@ems-isd.net6th Grade Pre-AP Literature 6th Grade Pre-APLanguage Arts Conference Period: 1st Period (8:25-9:10 a.m.)This is my 25th year of teaching and my 25th year with the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD (when you're lucky enough to start with the best, you stay there). I have been at Creekview Middle School since it opened, teaching 6th grade Literature and Language Arts. Prior to that I taught 4th grade at Bryson Elementary, PACE at Bryson Elementary and Saginaw Elementary, and 6th-8th grade Math at Highland Middle School. I have a BBA in Marketing from the University of North Texas (well, actually it was North Texas State University back in those days). I went back to North Texas and did coursework towards teacher certification. Finally, in 2004, I received my Master's of Education with an emphasis in Gifted/Talented Education from the University of North Texas. I have been married 36 years to my husband, Grady, and we raised three wonderful children, now successful adults. Currently my husband and I are raising our second set of "children": two miniature pinschers named Jonas and Trudy; our "tortie" cat, Aayla; and Snips, our jellicle (black and white) cat.
