6th Grade English Language Arts and Reading Teacher
This will be my 14th year teaching. I love watching children grow and learn. The intermediate grades are my favorite grades to teach.
I grew up in Wylie. I went to Birmingham Elementary school, Harrison Intermediate (it was a middle school back then), Burnett Junior High, and then graduated in 2001 from Wylie High School! I was in That Wylie Band and played the tuba. I attended the University of North Texas in Denton after high school and earned my Bachelor's degree in education.
Enough about all my school experience, you want to know who the real Mrs. Gebhardt is, not my resume! I am the loving wife of Clint Gebhardt, who is a 5th grade reading teacher in Allen ISD. We live in Wylie with our two sons and a wiener dog. Conner is an 8th grader in Wylie and enjoys football, baseball, and video games. Corby is a 4th grader in Wylie and enjoys baseball, legos, and invading his brother's space. Clint is an avid reader, loves to play golf, and is my very best friend. I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, quilting, crafting, and cooking.
I struggled as a student. I am extremely dyslexic and hated school. I had awesome teachers all through my schooling but because I felt dumb, learning was never my forte. My goal as an educator is to encourage my students to discover their strengths and help them grow through their struggles. I want to make what we do in class relevant to them and applicable in their lives.
