De Queen Middle School 2017 Teacher of the Year

Mrs. Tammy Lites

Mrs. Lites is a 1990 graduate of Dierks High School.  She earned her B.S.I.S degree from Texas A & M and her Master’s degree from Southern Arkansas University.  She is married to Chad Lites and has two children, Caitlin and Cody.  Caitlin is finishing her senior year at Southern Arkansas University, where she is pursuing a teaching degree.  Cody is a senior at De Queen High School and will be attending Henderson State University in the fall.

Mrs. Lites has been teaching for 20 years.  She began her teaching career at Lockesburg Elementary in 1997.  In 2000 she started teaching at Dierks and taught there for 14 years.  She spent 7 years in the 4th grade teaching all subjects, and 7 years teaching 5th and 6th-grade math.  This is currently her third year to teach math at De Queen Middle School.

“I love teaching! (But) I really love teaching math! I love to see the kids face brighten and their confidence soar when they grasp a new concept. Being in the classroom is a tremendous blessing. Each day is a brand new day full of adventure, learning, lessons and laughter.  Teachers have many expectations placed on them, but the one I hold very dearly, is to convey to each child they are important to me, to this school, to the community, and to themselves!”
