Mrs. Trona Jurden
I love being a Hartman Cool Cat and working with the students, families, teachers, and faculty at Hartman Elementary. First grade is my all time favorite age to teach. I love making my classroom a place where my students WANT to be. One student said, “I love when the books come to life.” I love helping beginning readers learn to read.
I graduated from Texas A&M University, College Station in 1991 with my degree in Education Curriculum and Instruction. I am certified to teach early childhood - 8th grade. My area of specialization is reading. I have an ESL endorsement and GT certification. I have 20+ years in first and second grade. I also enjoy teaching Sunday School at First Baptist Church here in Wylie. I graduate this May 2021 with my master's in Education with a specialization in Reading. I am CALP (Dyslexia trained).
