Welcome to Mrs. Herrington's classes.

Hello!  My name is Polly Herrington, and I call Paducah, TX home!!  I've been teaching for 28 years. This is my 12th year in Hereford.  My inspiration for teaching was my Dad, my hero!  The best teacher I ever knew was my late husband, Robert.  He always said that 'if you're not having fun, it's your own dern fault', and he exhibited that every day in the classroom by making it fun for his students,  but more especially, he made their learning something they could relate to!!!  
 
After graduating from WTAMU in Canyon, I starting my teaching career as a business teacher.  Then after 13 years, I became certified as a Special Education teacher and went in that direction eventually coming to Hereford ISD back in 2006 and making my home here in 2009.
 
Teaching at HCAL has been very rewarding, because I get to see so many students reach their potential by earning their diplomas and making a true believer out of themselves; therefore, helping me realize that my favorite quote is so true - 'Hard work pays off'!
