Mrs. Gina Baehl

A bit about me:  My husband and I have raised our family in Williamson County since 2004, moving here from Georgia where we met at Ga Tech.  I spent my early years after college in the financial sector, then was blessed to stay home with our children while they were young.  I have three grown sons, all living here in the central Texas area.  I enjoy road biking, country music, reading, and checking out the latest restaurants in town. 

This year, my goal is to instill a love of reading, a curiousity about the big, wide world, and desire to never stop learning!  We will hone writing skills to help students effectively communicate for varied purposes and audiences; we will read material from a variety of genres to gain understanding of perspective and purpose as well as broaden vocabulary; and they will work as both leaders and collaborators within diverse teams to accomplish common goaIs. Surely this year will bring challenges yet unforeseen, and together we will practice flexibility and grace to learn, grow and THRIVE! Our Language Arts syllabus shows below.

Every child is a treasure and I am excited to get to know each one, certain I will be enriched as we work together toward their goals.  Please contact me if there is anything about your child that concerns you or that will help me meet their needs.  Let's have a great year!
