Mrs. Grounds

My name is Mary Lee Grounds.  This is my 15th year teaching and my 10th year at Wyatt Elementary.  At Wyatt I have taught kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grade.  I also served as a team leader for several years. 

With my role as the Campus Instrctional Specialist/ 504 Coordinator/ Multi-Tier Support System Facilitator, I work with kindergarten through 5th grade. I support teachers and our campus to positively influence student achievement and assist with curriculum development and design.  I also work with our staff to share ideas in planning and all curriculum areas to support them with student differentiation in the classroom. Finally, I serve on the Wyatt MTSS (Multi Tiered Support System) Team and as the campus 504 Coordinator.  For that role, I regularly meet with administration, parents, and teachers to document student needs and accommodations to meet those needs.

In my past, I taught at Plano Senior in the Regional Day School Program for the Deaf, Centennial Elementary (4th grade), and Carlisle Elementary (kindergarten and 2nd grade).

I am a true born and raised Texan and the oldest of five! I graduated Cum Laude from The University of North Texas.  My husband Eric and I have been married a little over 14 years.  Our family includes two wonderful girls, Brianna (6th grade) and Brooklyn (2nd grade) that attend school in Allen, Caesar (German shepherd mix), Duke (full-bred German shepherd), and Jasper (cat).  When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, arts and crafts, decorating/fashion, indoor cycling on my Peloton, swimming, and spending time with our family.

I look forward to many more years of teaching the brilliant students at Wyatt!
