Welcome Lovejoy family! I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful community. My name is Anne Bessinger, and I teach first grade at Puster Elementary. I received my degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University. I love that my career allows me the opportunity to spend my days in the presence of children learning social and academic skills that will be a positive addition to their lives. I have been teaching for a total of 21 years. I spent 19 delightful years in the Kindergarten classroom. For the past two years, I have experienced the joy of teaching first grade. I love seeing the students continue to grow as readers, writers and critical thinkers. I hope the children that come to my classroom will find school a fun, happy and inspiring place to learn each day.
