What makes working in Tomball ISD so special?
“The people in this district make Tomball so special. I felt the sincerity from the first moment I stepped into Tomball ISD. Our District takes so much pride in the Tomball brand and is a place dedicated to high standards of excellence in our schools for all of our students and staff. The level of support you walk into as an employee is second to none, and our leaders are motivated by the same charge to support all students and staff in our schools to exceed all expectations. It is definitely an honor to work in a district that truly has students’ best interests at the forefront of all decision making.”
What are you looking forward to most about leading OIS this upcoming school year?
“OIS is such a special place to be and has a long standing history of success and culture of high expectations. I have been so impressed with all of the staff I have encountered and their commitment to excellence through continuous improvement. Our teachers have a drive to be on the cutting edge of quality instruction through various summer activities in preparation for the upcoming school year including facilitating a summer book study, attending conferences, and organizing content planning meetings. I am so excited to work with a group of professionals that never settle in a profession that forces us to be lifelong learners so we can be at our best every day for our students.”
