Mrs. Mandy Rhodes


I teach 6th grade ELAR-Honors, and 8th grade English, honors and on-level. My hope is not only that I can inspire your student to embrace reading and writing, but to also encourage them to think critically about the world around them and their place in it. I love the books that we read and the writing projects in eighth grade. It is my sincere hope that your student will, too. Not only do I teach, I am a wife and mother. My family and I moved here after my husband's military career ended in 2017. Although I have been all over the country and to different parts of the world, I am happy to call Plano home. I especially love Haggard! The staff, students and families are awesome.

As a parent, I have been where you are. I have four children; two are out of college, the other two are Haggard Eagles.I know that middle school is both scary and amazing. The experiences that your student has during these years really help to shape the person your student becomes. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
