Mrs. Barbara HImel
Hello! My name is Barbara Himel, and I am so excited to be working at Shady Shores Elementary as a 4th grade teacher. I began my teaching career in 2000, after graduating from Southwest Texas State University. I love teaching, and I have a strong passion for instilling a lifelong love of reading and writing in all students. I have taught in Leander ISD, Lake Dallas ISD, Lewisville ISD, and Liberty Christian School, and I am so thrilled to be back with my Lake Dallas Falcon family.
I live in Denton with my amazing husband, Scott, and my 4 beautiful children, Savannah, Madison, Nathan, and Matthew, who are all looking forward to being a Falcon!
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. -Anthony J. D'Angelo
