    Hi! Welcome to 5th Grade at Wolf Ranch Elementary. My name is Sandy Skains, and I teach language arts and social studies. I have a bachelor's degree, a doctorate, a TEFL certification, and I'm working on my alternate certification. Do you think I like learning?

    I recently relocated here (again) from Colorado with my one and only son, Ian, and our 12 year old Border Collie-Lab mix rescue dog, Penny. My hobbies are gardening and hiking. I just love being outside! When the weather is nice, you'll probably see my class in the outdoor learning area. As you can see from my pictures, in one of my recent outdoor adventures, I ran across a 500-year-old tree. It was delightful!

    My passion in life is to grow things and people. My prayer is that my students will grow to love learning and will lead, grow, and serve well in their spheres of influence in life.

    SO glad to be here at Wolf Ranch!
