Janell Thach 
    Welcome to the website for 1A.  I come from a home that highly valued education and believe the best schools are those that are a partnership between home and school.  My goal is to create a classroom environment where students are actively engaged in their learning through choice and collaboration.  Our hallway theme to begin the year is "Growing Hearts and Minds."  I look forward to working with you this year to make this a successful year for your child.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. 
    I grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas and attended Baylor University, graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education.  I began my teaching career at Austin Elementary in Coppell and have loved having the opportunity to see the community grow and change.  I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade and our gifted and talented program.  This will be my thirty-second year in education.
