Stephen F. Austin State University

4th Grade


Natalie Cardenas

I graduated from SFASU in December 2009. I began my career at SFA Charter School in January 2010. This will be my third year to teach fourth grade. My husband, Johnny, is the head baseball coach at SFA. We have a two year old son. We love being a part of the Nacogdoches community as well as the SFA community. Every day I am so excited about the learning that takes place in my classroom. My ultimate goal is for my students to feel safe and comfortable in the learning environment that I have created.

Jill Hines

My name is Jill Hines, and I am excited to begin my fourth year at the SFA Charter School. I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Stephen F. Austin. I am a certified Gifted and Talented teacher and have my E.S.L. certification. I spent twenty seven wonderful years teaching elementary school in Nacogdoches I.S.D. and taught as an adjunct faculty member in the SFA Elementary Education department for six years. My husband and I have a child in graduate school here at SFA, a senior at the University of Arkansas, and a ninth grader at Nacogdoches High. I am looking forward to a wonderful year in 4th grade!
