Welcome to Mrs. Willfong's Webpage!
I have been a Panther teacher since 2010 and love being here. My husband and I are originally from Illinois, but came to Texas as soon as we could. We have lived in our home for 20 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. We have two children and have raised them in the Navarro schools. My son, Campbell, is 20 and graduated from Navarro HS in 2016. He attends Texas State University. My daughter, Maggie, is 16 and is a senior at Navarro HS. She hopes to attend UT next fall. When I am not at school, you can usually find me with my family, in my gardens, or taking a run. I love all things outdoors!
Your child comes to me as a unique individual with his/her own unique experiences, interests, and learning style. I will work hard to build a strong relationship with your child, to provide an environment that he/she wants to come to everyday, and to guide, support and positively motivate him or her. I will need your commitment to partner with me in this important endeavor.
This school is a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow! It is even better when parents unite with the school to form a solid foundation for the children of our community. We need each other for this to be done in the best way possible. Please call, write a note, or email me if you have concerns, questions, comments, or volunteer time! My conference period is from 9:55-10:55 each day. I welcome a chance to visit with you. Please call or email me to confirm a time and date.
By Ray A. Lingenfelter
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher:
the tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent:
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.
And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!
And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home!
