Mrs. Mandy Rhodes


I teach 8th grade English, honors and on-level and am the English Department Chair. 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 eight 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 five years ago. 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 in college, I have a student here at Haggard and one at Davis Elementary. 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.
