Welcome to Bailey Intermediate! My name is Angela Compton, and I am starting my 22nd year at North Lamar. I am excited that your child will be attending our school!
This school year promises to be filled with opportunities for all our students to SHINE BRIGHT and RISE UP!
We have so much planned for the students that we know will make this year an enjoyable experience for everyone. Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel are committed to providing our students with meaningful and rigorous activities in the classroom. We extend an invitation to all families to join us for school activities and take an active role in the educational process of your child.

In her life outside of school, Shelly’s priority is her family. She and her husband,
Judd, live in Caviness, Texas near family members. They enjoy spending time at
home and their hobby of owning a small herd of cattle. Shelly and Judd have a
daughter, son-in-law, two handsome grandsons, and one beautiful granddaughter that
live in Haleiwa, Hawaii. She takes every opportunity available to fly west. She loves
to read books and has quite the collection in her home.
Mrs. Bivens looks forward to an outstanding year of watching your children grow.
Please remember you are your child’s first teacher. The most successful schools are
