Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Amber Harville and I am a 4th grade reading, composition and social studies teacher. Donna Whitmore is my teaching partner. Mrs. Whitmore teaches math, science and language arts.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in La Porte. I attended College Park Elementary, Baker Jr. High and I graduated from La Porte High School. I attended college at University of Houston Clear Lake. This year will be my 23rd year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, second grade, third grade and fourth grade. Fourth grade is awesome, and I love being a Lomax Lion.
I am married, Mr. Harville and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversary next March. We live in La Porte, and we have two children. My daughter, Isabel, is 15 years old and she is a sophmore at La Porte High School. My son, Ty, is 10 and he is in 5th grade at Lomax. My family has two dogs named Tinker and Lucy.
When I am not at school, I am usually spending time with my family. I enjoy doing arts and crafts like scrapbooking, making cards and art journaling. However, my favorite hobby is reading. I love to read biographies about interesting people and realistic fiction.
