Whitehouse Independent School District


I have been teaching for 23 years. During these years, I have taught at the junior high level, and at the elementary level. For the past 18 years, I have taught language arts at Higgins Elementary.  I partner with three wonderful teachers, Lisa Alexander (Math), Betsy Groce (Science), and Paula Salas (English/Writing).  

I have three children of my own. Travis, a 2012 Whitehouse ISD graduate, is currently attending the University of Arkansas majoring in finance, Allyson, a 2015 Whitehouse ISD graduate, is a Physical Therapist Assistant, and Rachael is a sixth-grader at Holloway.  I also have 3 dogs, Teddy, Champ, and Sophie.

I'm looking forward to working with your students this year!!
My conference time is 1:15 - 2:05 daily.  You may contact me at cartert@whitehouseisd.org
