Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Rhonda Wilcox
My name is Rhonda Wilcox. I am a wife, mother of three, and grandmother of seven. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, and traveling. The last nine summers I have had the opportunity to travel to Latvia and teach in a children's Bible camp. An interesting fact about this small country, once controlled by Russia, is that the average height of Latvian women ranks tallest in the world. This experience has enabled me to visit several European countries where I am intrigued by the beautiful buildings built centuries ago. On a lighter note, I am a fan of Diet Coke and the trio of NCIS programs.
Both my mother and grandmother were teachers. After graduating from White Oak High School, I chose to follow in their footsteps. I am a two time graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Masters of Education. I have always loved working with kids of all ages. So when asked, "When are you going to retire?" My answer is, "Not yet. I still love the kids." This is my 36th year to teach and my 33rd year to teach in Union Grove. Due to my long stay at the Grove, I am blessed to teach the children of former students. I currently teach Algebra 2 and Precalculus and serve as the National Honor Society Advisor. My goal is for each student that enters my room to feel safe, valued, and to grow in their knowledge of mathematics.
