Elizabeth Adair, Dyslexia Specialist / Instructional Coach

College: I graduated from Texas Women's University. 

Teaching History: This will be my 9th year in education and 7th year with Plano ISD. I began teaching with McKinney ISD in 5th grade. Then I went to Imagine International Academy of North Texas (also in McKinney) where I taught IB in 2nd grade and fell in love with the IB programme. I've also taught 3rd & 2nd grade at Skaggs Elementary and for the last 3 years I have been an instructional coach at Huffman.  This year I will also be the dyslexia specialist for Huffman. 

Family: I have been married to my wonderful husband, Bryce, for 20 years. We have 3 amazing kids - 1 boy (18) and 2 girls (15 & 8) - who keep us busy and constantly entertained. 

Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I love to read for both pleasure and professional growth. I also enjoy running. It's my way to destress and stay fit all rolled up in one.

Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I jumped on the opportunity to become a Huffman Hawk because I wanted to be part of the IB programme again. Developing lifelong learners who are internationally minded, globally aware, and driven to action are core beliefs of not only the IB programme but myself. I am passionate about teaching the whole child and making learning relevant to life.
