First Grade Teacher


Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

I am Lyndy Stokes, and I am one of the first grade teachers at WCS. I am very excited about this school year and cannot wait to see what God has in store!

I graduated from Baylor in December of 2016, with my teaching certificate and degree in Elementary Education. I did my internship (or student teaching) at Hillcrest Elementary in a first grade classroom. This past spring semester, I was a Reading Interventionist in Gatesville. It was a great job for a recent grad and I was very blessed to be employed right after graduation! I will also be starting an online masters program this fall, where I was be pursuing a degree in library science and technology. I am very passionate about technology and giving students a hands-on learning experience where they can learn to be safe and responsible digital citizens.

Colin and I got engaged in May, and were married August 12! He is originally from the Waco area, while I ended up here because of Baylor and stayed because of him! I am excited to explore this area more and become more involved in the community!

I have been praying for this school year and the students who will be in my classroom and this school. WCS has been so open and welcoming, and I know God has great things in store!
