Howdy! Welcome to Ms. Higgins' Math Class

A Little About Me
My name is Laurie Higgins and I'm new to HCAL this year.  I previously taught math at Hereford High School before moving to HCAL and I'm excited to be here.  This will be my 20th year in education. 
A Little More About Me
I was born and raised in Hereford.  I went to school in this building when it was Shirley Elementary.  I currently teach in my old 4th-grade classroom, but thankfully the building has been remodeled since I was a student.  I graduated from Hereford High School and then attended and graduated from Texas A&M University (Gig 'Em!).  My degree is in Petroleum Engineering and I worked for a major oil company for about 20 years.
How I switched careers to education is a long story, but I had the opportunity to do so and have loved it ever since.
Quotes I Like
"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today."
