Meet Mrs. Strang

Hello!

Hello friends, and welcome to my class website.  My name is Reddishann Strang and I am 43 years old.  This is my 2nd year in 1st grade here in Tomball.  I taught 1st grade 5 years and 2nd grade for 13.  I have 20 years of teaching overall.    I am originally from New Mexico where I graduated with my degree in 2001.  I received my M.A. in Curriculum & Instruction Reading at Prairie View A&M University in December of 2015.

 

My Background

I graduated from New Mexico State University in 2001.  I recieved my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education.  I am certified to teach children from birth to age 10.  I moved to Irving, TX and taught 1st grade from 2001-2006.  In 2006 I moved to Orange Park, FL and taught 2nd grade for 2 years at The Oakleaf School and 4 years at Oakleaf Village Elementary.  In 2012, we moved back to TX and I began working in Tomball ISD at Lakewood Elementary.  Then I followed Mr. Aston and helped to open Creekview Elementary in 2015.

 

Family

When I'm not at school, I'm spending time with my family.  My husband, Dennis and I have a combined family of 7.  Dennis retired as an Lt. Commander in the US Navy this year and is currently teaching US History in Magnolia ISD.  We have 5 children between us ranging in age from 18-24.  Their names are Dennis Jr, Dejah, Terrell, Elijah, and Destiny.  We love to eat out, see movies, play games, and have fun.  The extra members of our family are our maltipoo, Lulu and our chocolate lab named Kobe.  We recently also lost our weenie dog, Archie.  They spend their day sleeping but both greet each of us with lots of love and licks.
