Dear 2021-2022 Parents and Students,
Hello Everyone!  Welcome to 2nd Grade!  My name is Darra Reynolds and I am extremely excited about this school year!  I am looking forward to working with you and getting to know your children!  I know that this school year may look and feel a little different but we are going to face it together as a class family.  Some of us will be wearing masks and some will not.  We will be washing/sanitizing our hands a lot, and we will be happy campers!
I am so excited to begin my sixteenth year at Lakewood, and my twenty-second year in teaching! I am a product of this wonderful school system as are my two children. It is such a blessing to work with such a supportive administration, staff, and parents in a school full of bright and talented students! I am grateful to be a part of a truly collaborative school community!

I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University with teaching certificates in General Education - Early Childhood through 8th grade, Speech Communications, and English as a Second Language.Pa Last year, I obtained 30 hours of Foundational Credit for Educating Gifted and Talented Learners and received a six hour update this summer.  I began my career in Spring ISD, where I taught first grade for three years, Kindergarten for two years, and an additional year substituting in various grade levels.  Since joining Tomball ISD, I have taught Kindergarten and Second Grade here at Lakewood.
