Hello, my name is Lorrie Birkhead. I have been teaching for 26 years, 23 of those at Rockdale Elementary. I have taught PK, Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and worked as a Reading Specialist, but 1st grade is my favorite! I received my bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State in Elementary Education and then my Master of Education in Reading from SHSU a few years later.

My husband James is a Rockdale Alumni, and we have 3 sons and 1 daughter who also graduated from Rockdale HS. James is a former teacher, and we are proud of our community and love to support local organizations by volunteering our time. I am also a very proud grandmother of 8 perfect grandchildren!

I look forward to another great year at Rockdale ISD! Go Tigers!
