Hello! My name is Erin Barlow. This is my 7th year teaching in Spring ISD and my second year teaching at Anderson Elementary! I was born and raised in the great city of Houston, Texas and graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos. I enjoy dancing, being outdoors and swimming. I look forward to this new school year!

Mrs. Wanda Hill

Hello! My name is Mrs. Wanda Halley Hill. I grew up in the Spring/Klein area on a farm that my great-grandfather, Adam Klein (a German immigrant farmer) had settled. I attended Trinity Lutheran Elementary School and then Klein High School. I graduated from Texas State University in 1983. I have taught several different grades: Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, and the Learning Lab program at Wunsche High School (where my dad graduated from in 1949). But, my passion is teaching Pre-K! When their little faces light up, my heart melts! I feel as though I have a room filled with 24 of my grandkids. I LOVE them! This will be my 30th year of teaching, but 10 of those years were in a private school setting.

I have been married to Ray Hill for 34 years. We have 3 kids; Amanda, Ross, and Rex. Amanda attended University of Louisiana on a full softball scholarship as a pitcher, and then went on to University of St. Augustine in Florida to get her DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) degree. Ross was a great high school athlete but did not choose to play sports in college. Rex, the baby, attended Texas Christian University on a full baseball scholarship as a pitcher and was drafted by the Kansas City Royals.

My daughter married her college sweetheart, Eli (he is an Occupational Therapist) and they currently live in Lafayette, Louisiana. They have 2 sons. My middle son is a manager of a restaurant in Tomball, and Rex just recently got engaged to his college sweetheart.

I am very blessed to have 3 wonderful children, 3 grandchildren, and a classroom full of beautiful Pre-K children. I love them all! I have lots of energy and tons of great activities planned for this year! I welcome any questions, or comments. I can’t wait to meet everyone!

Ms. Elizabeth Varela, Bilingual Teacher

Hola! My name is Elizabeth Varela, but everybody calls me Sissi. I am from Colombia and have been living in the USA for the last 20 years with my two daughters. I started teaching bilingual Pre-K 15 years ago and I love it. I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications-Journalism and got a certification as a teacher when I moved to Houston. I also have a Master of Arts from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Teaching little ones is my passion and teaching in two languages makes it so much fun. Reading, going to the theater and watching movies are my favorite hobbies.
