Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year at San Augustine Elementary school! My name is Delois Stripling and I will be your child’s teacher. The students may call me “Mrs. Dee”. Mrs. Brenda Bolton will be assisting me with your child’s learning.

I want to start off by telling you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Haslam, Texas. That’s between Joaquin, Texas and Logansport, Louisiana. I am one of 11 children (4 boys and 7 girls). I attended elementary school in Joaquin, Texas; graduated from C. H. Daniels high school in Center, Texas; graduated from Prairie View A & M with a major in mathematics; graduated beauty school in Scarborough, Ontario (Canada); graduated clown school in Orlando, Florida (That was just waaaaay too much fun!).

I worked for the US Army as a missile maintenance technician and sample data collector on the Tow Cobra Attach Helicopter and the Red Eye Missile Launcher for a number of years. This job provided me with the opportunity to live and work in several states in the US as well as spending a 5-yr tour of duty (as a civil service employee) in Germany. It was a fantastic experience living with and learning from other cultures and races of people.

I am married and we have two adult children and 3 grandchildren. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with people of all ages! I am a Christian and have taught children’s and adult Sunday school, vacation Bible school and women’s Bible study.

I look forward to getting to know you and your “Little Person”! Thank you for choosing to send your child to San Augustine Elementary and for letting me be one of the first of the many teachers your child will encounter in his/her lifetime.


Delois (Mrs. Dee) Stripling
