I am Tracey Whitaker. I graduated from Hardin-Jefferson in 1983. I attended Lamar University and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. I have two children, Ethan and Hannah, who have both graduated from Hardin-Jefferson.I began my teaching career at Sour Lake Elementary,in 1989, teaching second grade. In 1998, I began teaching fourth grade and have been here ever since and love it! Mrs. Menard, the other fourth grade Language Arts teacher, and I collaborate together to teach your children the skills necessary to successfully meet the requirements established by the state of Texas. I have several websites on my useful links that your child can go to for practice and review.  For example, our spelling for each week can be found on the Spelling City website. Students can play games to help reinforce learning of their spelling words.  As you may or may not know, the fourth grade is the grade the STAAR Test for Writing, Revision, and Editing is implemented. Our goal is to help your child set a solid foundation for becoming a confident writer. As well as, providing your child with a treasure chest of knowledge to perform to the best of their abilities.
