Tracy Yarbrough » Welcome!




My name is Tracy Yarbrough and I am a 1st grade teacher.  We will have so much fun in first grade!  We learn so many new things and participate in all kinds of fun and exciting activities.  It will be a year full of wonderful memories!  I cannot wait to meet each student and watch them grow.


This will be my 33rd year teaching. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of St. Thomas and my Masters degree in School Counseling from Lamar University.  I have been at DPE for 14 years.  Previously, I taught in Pasadena ISD and Pearland ISD teaching every grade level from 1st - 6th.


I have one son, Jeremy, who just graduated from Deer Park High School.  He was Valedictorian for the class of 2019.  He will be a Senior at the University of Houston Honor's College this year majoring in Mechanical Engineering.  We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and one hermit crab. As you can see, I love animals.  My favorite things to do are travel with my son and dad, dance, listen to all types of music, read, work on puzzles, eat out, and explore new places.  



Develop a passion for learning.  If you do, you will never cease to grow. - Anthony J. D'Angelo
