Hello and welcome to our 4th Grade Page!!!
My name is Rex Boyse. I was born and raised in Artesia, New Mexico. I am a graduate of West Texas State University - which is now West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. I received my Bachelor of Science in May of 1989.
This will be my 30th year to teach. This year I will be teaching 4th grade Math and Science. I will team teach with Mrs. Butterworth. She will be teaching my homeroom English Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies.
My educational career began in Odessa, Texas back in 1989. I taught 4th grade for nine years in Odessa before we moved to Weatherford in 1998. I taught 6th grade for one year and then fourth grade for three years at Travis Elementary School. In August 2002, Travis Elementary was closed and we opened Bose Ikard Elementary. Here at Ikard, I have taught 2nd grade for two years and 4th for fifteen years. Although, I have truly enjoyed 2nd and 6th graders, I must admit my true love and passion is for fourth graders.
It is true what they say, "Time flies when you are having fun". It seems just like yesterday when I began teaching. I am blessed and thankful everyday to be able to have the job that I do.
