Mrs. Nola Hedgepeth

I'm a true fan of those bumper stickers that say I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could. I've lived in several states and two countries, Costa Rica and the Bahamas. I am proud to now claim the rolling hills and majestic hardwoods of east Texas as my home. This year marks my 23rd in education with experience in grades 3-12 in General Ed, Special Ed and bilingual classrooms in public and private schools in Florida and Texas. Additionally, I have business world experience in marketing and office management.

My passion is spending time with kids--reading and writing and reveling in the wonder of life through their eyes. There is an unparalleled joy working with kids, and I know that I am blessed to be here at Orr. I'm excited to teach Reading in 3rd grade. Let's roar loud, Cubs!!
