Hi everyone! My name is Myra Trent and I am a second grade teacher at G. W. Carver Elementary school. I am a native of Patrick County, where I attended and graduated from Patrick County High School. Next, I graduated from Radford University with my teaching degree. I taught in Patrick County Public Schools for a total of 6 years before coming to Henry County Public Schools in 2001. After a few years of teaching, I returned to Radford University and worked on completing my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2007. This school year is my twenty fifth year working as a teacher.
When I am not working with my students, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and doing things outside. I have been married to my husband, Thomas, for twenty years and we have been blessed with two awesome children. I like taking pictures and exploring with my kids, Emily and Evan. We like to travel and learn about the past. We also love the beach, Tweetsie Railroad, The Smithsonian Museums, Mount Vernon, and Mabry's Mill. On our bucket list of places to visit are Rome, Italy, Vancouver, Canada, the Niagara Falls, The Alamo and the Grand Canyon.
I am looking forward to working with each of my students and having an awesome year at G W Carver!
