Fourth of July Family picutre

My name is Amanda McFarland and I have been teaching for 7 years.  My first year I taught 3rd grade math, then taught 2nd grade with Ms. Guthals for 3 years and now I have the best job in the elementary.  This will be my 3rd year to teach art and music.

I grew up a Lobo in Monahans, TX and graduated from West Texas A&M.  

It was in Canyon that I met my sweet husband, Lane and we have been married for 15 years. We have three amazing children.  Eric is in Jr. High, Austin is in 5th grade and Kenzie is in 4th.  

We have lived in Farwell for 10 years (Lane's hometown) and are so blessed to call this small community our home.  

The first semester will be all about singing and dancing. We will be learning notes, instruments, folk dancing, and we will be getting ready for our Christmas Program.  
Second semester we will dabble in clay, paint, charcoal, and pastels just to name a few.  We will be painting on canvases, and learning about different artists.  
This year our Elementary Christmas program was a huge success.  We have some future actors coming out of our town for sure.  If you would like a copy of "Elf Jr." please let me know as soon as possible.  The cut off is January 26th and the DVDs are only $10.
This year our Art show will be held Thursday May 17th at 5:30.  CATCH Family Fun night will also be held this night along with the end of year band concert and High School Art Show. 
Farwell ISD's mission is to provide quality instruction to all students so they will develop into responsible, adaptable, contributing citizens with caring attitudes. The district is responsible for helping all students achieve their fullest potential since all students can learn. With this in mind, an objective-based curriculum continuum is utilized at all levels. It will include the facility for ongoing evaluation and change in order to meet the evolving needs of students.
