Creekview Family,
 
 
This will be my eighth year working within the Tomball Independent School District.  I started my amazing experience at Rosehill Elementary as a student teacher in 2009. I was then hired at Rosehill for the 2010-2011 school year. I have been privileged to teach both second and third grade. My experience includes working with gifted and talented students as well as students that speak english as a second language. 
 
This will be my seventh year teaching second grade and my second... at Creekview
 
GO COUGARS!!!

Parents,
 
   Wow!  Can you believe the kiddos are halfway through their second grade school year?  I still remember them coming in to meet the teacher and they were so little and nervous yet excited! That was how I felt this morning when I was walking to Rise and Shine!  I was thinking while I was walking- did they miss me, are they all here, are they excited, did they grow taller, are they happy to be here today...? But my nerves were calmed almost immediately as I entered the cafeteria. I was greeted with an abundance of hugs, squeezes, and excitement from my kiddos! Whew! We had a great day back!
 
On an educational note- I will not be assigning homework or be giving a spelling test or fact quiz this week. We will resume our normal homework and testing schedule next week on Tuesday, January 16th as the students do not have school on Monday, January 15th.
