Meet Mrs. Yelle

It is a pleasure for me to be at Cross Timbers Elementary this year. My family and I moved to Azle from Enid, Oklahoma. I spent 8 wonderful years at a PK-12th school in Drummond, Oklahoma where I was Counselor, Language Arts teacher, Student Council Advisor, and class sponsor.

I spend time in each classroom weekly discussing character traits. I also see students for individual and group guidance. I have enjoyed meeting all the students, parents, faculty, and staff and look forward to the school year.

Rachel's Challenge

Our school is committed to promoting kindness and compassion so that Cross Timbers remains a safe place to learn and grow.  In doing so, we have implemented the Rachel's Challenge program.  The main focus is to influence others in a positive way, set goals, accept others, and recognize kindness.  Students are encouraged to fill out paper chain links with statements of kind and compassionate actions they have witnessed from others.  The links are then chained together and displayed in classrooms and the hallway.  This has allowed our staff more opportunities to highlight those behaviors that exemplify Rachel's Challenge.
