Mrs. Yvette Bernal Grimes - 3rd Grade; English Reading, Writing, and Math



I have been teaching since 2005 and always at the Elementary level.  I've taught Kindergarten, 4th grade, and 3rd Grade.  I'm happy to be a "part of the Pack" and even had a dog that looked just like our white lobo!  I think it was destiny!


I have three adult children, a new husband, an amazing first grandchild, and one lovable dog, whom I use as examples in my teaching, so your child will get to know my family quite well. 


I graduated high school from Newman Smith in Carrollon/Farmers Branch ISD.  I then attended Texas Tech University yet graduated from the University of North Texas.  I was born in Haleyville, Alabama so I Roll Tide! and make amazing sweet tea!  Alabama football will also be a common example in my teaching! Sorry, not sorry. 


Thank you for sharing your child with me.  I look forward to us working together to make his/her school year amazing!


I look forward to meeting you and your child/ren so my sentences can be more about "we" and less about "I."
