About Me My name is Amber Counts. This is my third year teaching at Pine Tree Junior High. I am beginning my 5th year teaching, having come from Mount Pleasant Junior High in my hometown of Mount Pleasant, Texas. I am a graduate of Northeast Texas Community College, and received my Bachelor's Degree from Texas A&M University -Texarkana. I am married to my best friend Nick Counts, and we have four wonderful children between us, including one US Airman, a College student, and two high school students in different schools. We are also the proud pet owners of one darling Luna. I am an avid reader. I enjoy all genres of reading, and am a retired journalist/ editor. I worked in journalism for over a decade before deciding to TEACH students how to read and write.

Remind 101

Remind 101 is a group text for reminders on homework and test dates. I will also send notes, letters, and more through this app. I ask that all parents sign up for this reminder app. It will keep you informed about what we are doing in class! I teach two different classes. Please check your child’s schedule and sign up for whichever class he/she has for me.

Parents: Please text @@h9k27fe to the number 81010

Students in Junior High are welcome and encouraged to join the NEWSPAPER club, which will create/publish our very own newsapaper! Meetings are Wednesdays, Room 316.
