Derenda Fugate

Hi my name is Derenda Fugate.  I am so excited to be to teach kindergarten at Era Elementary this year! I have worked the past three years as a paraprofessional in both kindergarten and pre-k classrooms.  This is my first year to have my own classroom and I cannot wait to get started!!  I love having the opportunity to be a part of the first school experience for children.  I believe what we start here in kindergarten sets the stage for how they will feel about education.  My goal is to create a love for learning in each child!!

 When I am not teaching I spend most of my time with my husband, Daniel and 3 kids Holden (19), Harleigh (13), and Hayes (9).  I love to watch sports of any kind and much of my "off" time is spent watching one of the kids playing something.  I grew up in Justin when it was still a small town and I am so excited to be a part of a district that is rural!!
