About Ms. Floyd:
My name is Kandace Floyd, and I'm thrilled to be starting my second year in Wink. Before coming to here, I worked for Seagraves High School, Muleshoe High School, South Plains College, Sul Ross State University, The University of Arkansas -  Fort Smith, and as an educator for Community Health Systems.
 
I earned my B.A. in English from Texas State University in San Marcos. After more than a decade's career as a writer, editor, and marketing professional, I realized I wanted to pursue teaching and earned my master's degree from Sul Ross State University. I am certified to teach secondary English (grades 7-12) and college composition and literature classes.
 
In addition to my role as an English teacher, I am the One-Act Play director. I am thrilled to be able to share my own experiences as an actor, singer, and director with our theater students. For Spring UIL academics, I will be coaching Literary Criticism and Copy Editing. I travel with the Baad Cat band, as well, and I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work with our great students here in Wink.
