Jules Brooks

My name is Jules Brooks and this will be my first year at the SFA Charter School. My teaching career began in January of 2012, after having received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from SFA in December 2011. I taught 2nd grade for one and a half years at Temple Elementary in Diboll, and taught 1st grade for two years at Laneville Elementary. I am privileged to now be a part of the Charter School family! I love children and I feel that teaching is my calling! When I am not in the classroom, I am spending time with family and friends, attending church activities, or relaxing at home. I am excited to start the year and look forward to working with you and your child!

Lauryn Kitchen

Welcome to First Grade! I am excited to have the privilege to be your child's teacher this year. I received my bachelor's degree in education from Texas A&M in 2008, as well as my EC-4th generalist certificate and ESL certificate. I have 4 ½ yrs of classroom teaching experience in Kindergarten & Pre-K as well as 15 years in Early Childhood experience. I have a passion for teaching and hope to foster the love of learning in each of my students. My husband Lance and I have been married for 6 years, we live in Nacogdoches, and have been blessed with 2 precious daughters Lily and Loralyn. The last 4 years I have been at home raising our 2 girls and managing our small photography business. Being able to be a stay at home mom has been one of my biggest blessings, however I am elated and honored to return to the classroom and begin this new chapter at the SFA Charter School.
