Paula Ernst

My name is Paula Ernst. Teaching is one of my greatest joys. I am blessed every year by seeing these children grow and learn.  It is difficult to describe the wonder of getting to see learning happen, and to recognize the instant that concept is learned.  I have taught 22 years now.  I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and now 5th grade.

I am married to Derek Ernst, a fireman in Abilene.  We three boys - Creed, Colby, and Caleb.  Creed is 13. He is in eighth grade here in Hawley. Colby is 17 and attends Abilene High. Caleb is 19.  He just graduated from the Cisco Fire Academy.
