2nd Grade
Teacher: Mrs. Revett

Welcome to 2nd Grade

Hello, I am Mrs. Revett.  I'm honored to be your child's teacher at Simonton Christian Academy this year. 

I am a certified Texas educator in Early Childhood - 6th grade with an ESL supplemental certificate.  I have taught Pre-Kindergarten at River Bend Baptist Church, and have substituted for Lamar CISD and Brazos ISD.  I graduated from Texas A&M University, Kingsville, Texas.  My husband and I have lived in Fulshear for fourteen years, and we have five endearing children.  The love of teaching runs in my family; my eldest daughter is a secondary science educator in Arlington, TX.

I enjoy listening to KHCB (Keeping Him Close By) 105.7 FM.  On Saturday mornings I listen to several programs for the "young" and "the young at heart."  Starting at 8 a.m. ICR, Science, Scripture, and Salvation is a 15 minute radio journal on creation.  Following at 8:15 a.m. the Uncle Bob Show, Story Book, is my favorite program.  Uncle Bob also teaches about God's wonderful scientific design in nature along with Biblical application to scriptures.  So, check it out next Saturday morning!  My other passions are bird watching and spending time with my family.

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!  Please don't hesitate to contact me for any reason.  You may use the school's email.  Second grade will be an awesome year!

Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Marion Revett,  2nd Grade Teacher
