My name is Carolyn Strom and will be your English II (English II Pre-AP) teacher! This is my tenth year teaching, but my first in Grandview.  I am not originally a Texan, so try not to hold that against me. The first eleven years of my life were spent in Florida. My parents decided to be missionaries so we trekked south to Bogota, Colombia where I stayed until I graduated high school. I returned to the US for college and graduated from Dallas Baptist University. My husband and I have lived in Texas for eleven years now! I have two young sons who will be attending Grandview elementary in Kindergarten and Pre-K. Most of my time away from school is spent with them! In my free time I love to read, shop, spend time with friends and family, and I am attempting to refine my hand lettering skills. 


    My goals for this year are to improve my teaching techniques and become familiar with even more works of literature. On the personal side I want to set up a good exercise schedule and streamline food prepping! 


    I am extremely excited to be joining the Grandview Zebra herd, and I can't wait to see what this year holds!
