My name is Karissa Figueroa. This is my eighth year teaching 3rd grade at Hamshire Fannett Elementary. I love being a part of the Hamshire Fannett family. I graduated from Lamar University Beaumont. I have been married to my husband , Ruben, for ten years. I have two boys that are my heart. Jordan is 9 years old and in the 3rd grade. Landon is 3 years old and attends daycare. I am so excited for this school year to begin. There are a lot of changes taking place but I am confident it is a step in the right direction.
