Position: Fifth-Grade Teacher
First Name: Sue Ellen
Last Name: Vardell


Welcome to 5th grade! I am so glad to be back, and to have a new year ahead of us. I know that everyone is anxious about how school will look and feel, and you probably have a multitude of questions. Well, I most definitely do not have all the answers, but I will do my 

best to navigate the obstacles we face, and try to

make the transitions as smooth as possible.



A little about your teacher:

My name is Sue Ellen Vardell, and I live in Krum with my husband of 30 years. We have 2 adult daughters, a son-in-law, and two grandsons (ages 7 and 4), and another on the way! Teaching has been a lifelong career for me, and each year I look forward to the newness of it. New students, a fresh start, even the new school supplies are exciting! I have taught 3rd, 4th and now 5th, and through the years I have taught all subject areas, however ELAR is my specialty. I love to read myself, and it is my job to show students how much they can gain through literature.


I have been doing this for a long time, and I would hope that we have made it through the last two years knowing that we did the best we could. From this point on, let us all pray that we can get back to some concept of “normal” (whatever that may be). I look forward to working with you, the parents and students! Welcome to 5th grade!
