Welcome, Mr. Bell!
Hi, LHE community! My name is Mark Bell, and I am so excited to be a part of the LHE team! I grew up in McKinney and attended college at TCU, but I have lived and worked in Louisiana for the last 9 years. I taught second and third grades and was an elementary school master teacher. For
the last two years, I was the assistant principal of a middle school.
My fiancée and I got engaged in December and decided that this summer was a good time to move closer to family (She will be teaching 6th grade ELA at Richardson Terrace.).
I am super excited to be back in Texas, back working in an elementary school, and to be at LHE! I have heard great things about the staff, students, and community.
I look forward to meeting and working with each of you!
