Welcome Wildcats to a WONDERFUL new school year 2018-2019!

 

First of all, I want to thank you for giving me the privilege to be teaching your child, I am looking forward to getting to know them and helping them grow into inquisitive and curious scientists. I am blessed to be in Oakcrest teaching along side a wonderful science team AND bilingual team. My 5th grade science team consists of Mrs.Leach and Mrs.Jackson. My bilingual team consists of Mrs.Porras (LA), Mrs.Morales (SS), Mrs.Lagos (Math),  Ms.Osorio and Mrs.Worsham. I am also co-teaching 6th grade science with Ms. Hunt.

 

I grew up as a Tomball Cougar. I started school in Tomball Elementary back when it first opened. I went to both Tomball Intermediate and Beckendorf Intermediate during my 5th and 6th grade. I moved into Tomball Junior High and finally graduated from Tomball High School in 2009. I got my Bachelor's from Sam Houston State University. I have previously taught 6th grade in Bryan I.S.D.

Happy Tuesday!

Dear parents/guardians,
 
The students have been working on Fossil Fuels notes and a Webquest during class. These are found in their Google Classroom. Some of the students did not finish, so it has turned into homework. I wanted to inform you so you know that they will be coming home with some assignments today to prepare for Thursday's test.

We will have our Unit 6/7 test this Thursday. Please ask your child what the process of lithification consists of (they should say compaction/cementation), also ask what compaction and cementation does to sedimentary rocks. For further practice, please ask them to give you examples of weathering, erosion deposition that are happening outside of school. 
 
Best regards,
