Mrs. Michelle Sparks - Fourth Grade
I am very excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher! I truly love to work with fourth grade students by helping them to push and challenge themselves farther than they ever thought possible. It is my goal to make learning fun and easy. I am originally from the Lansing, Michigan area. In 1993, I graduated from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with a Bachelor of Science degree.
I have a triple minor in math & science, English, and elementary education. Shortly after college graduation, I moved to Texas so that I could begin teaching in Little Elm. In addition to my regular teaching credentials, I now hold an endorsement for teaching gifted and talented as well as English as a second language certification.
I have taught at many Little Elm campuses over the years, including Little Elm Elementary/Intermediate, Brent, Zellars, Powell, and now Chavez. I have taught fourth grade for all but one year. Several ago, I was the Gifted and Talented teacher for fifth and sixth grade students at Brent and Powell Intermediate Schools.
My husband, David, and I live in Little Elm. He is even a Little Elm alumni! My daughter, Hannah, is a graduate of LEHS. Our son, Benjamin, is a second grader at Chavez! My step-daughter, Sara, is an occupational therapist. Our family rounds out with our cats, Bullwinkle, Natasha, Igenta, and Garfield.
