Mary Kay Izard

Fifth and Sixth Grade ELA and Social Studies Teacher

Mary Kay Izard is a new teacher and is excited to be a part of the Xavier Educational Academy team. She holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Education from Texas A&M University. One of Mary Kay’s goals is to help students traverse “why,” “how,” and a myriad of other questions. She hopes to guide students to discovery. If children uncover “why,” they are most likely to remember and utilize the information.

In her spare time, Mary Kay enjoys family, hiking, traveling, cooking and gardening. She also enjoys Sudoku, reading, and HGTV!

Mary Kay wants students to feel good about learning and about themselves. Building confidence is a valuable part of life. If the students believe in themselves, they can accomplish anything!
