My name is Mary Lynette LeCompte and this is my 13th year to teach art at Hasse Elementary and I am enjoying my new classroom and the new building. I received my Visual Arts Degree at University of Houston at Clear Lake and my teaching certificate at Act Houston. I love art and being able to share my gifts and love of art with my students. I love the Alvin Community and am an Alvinisd Alumni and a second generation Alvinite. I care about our community and wish to see our students be successful so they may grow up to become successful leaders. My favorite activitites are making art, of course, like drawing, painting, and weaving. I love spending time with my family especially my new grandbaby. I also have a precious pouch named Pebbles that definetly is classeified as a lap dog. My goal for this year is to let the kids explore the art materials to increase their manipulation skills and investigate what they like and is aesthetically pleasing to them. We will also emphasize our core values at Hasse Elementary which are-- Leadership, Example, Attitude and Pride in our selves, our shcool and our community. I am looking forward to a great year and hope we all LEAP into an art year of amazing art and fun.
