WELCOME TO OAKCREST INTERMEDIATE

I am blessed to serve the students, parents and community as the Assistant Principal at Oakcrest! I look forward to meeting each and everyone one of you.  I am originally from a small town in Texas, and graduated from Texas A & M University in 2005 with a double major in business marketing and management. WHOOP! After working in the business world, I decided to pursue my dream and become a teacher.  In 2010, I went back to Sam Houston State University where I graduated with my Master’a Degree in Education.  This will be my thirteenth year in education and my twelfth year in Tomball ISD.  I enjoy being a mom, golfing, fishing, spending time with my family, traveling and playing with my dog, Allie.  I’m looking forward to a great year!

Kristen Lee
Assistant Principal
 

I am so excited to be serving as the Assistant Principal at Oakcrest Intermediate School! I have been with Tomball Independent School District for over 20 years and have seen firsthand how much the district has grown.

 

I am transitioning to Oakcrest Intermediate from Creekview Elementary School as the Assistant Principal. I had the privilege of serving the Creekview community since 2015.

 

I served Rosehill Elementary as the Assistant Principal for 6 years before opening Creekview Elementary. I began my career over 25 years ago as a second grade teacher in Marshall ISD. I joined Tomball ISD in 1997 and taught third grade students and health and physical education to students in grades kindergarten through fourth at Tomball Elementary. In 2004, I taught third grade gifted and talented students at Rosehill Elementary until assuming my role as the Assistant Principal.

 

I earned a bachelor of science in education at East Texas Baptist University and a master of education in administration at Sam Houston State University.

 

I look forward to serving the Oakcrest community as your Assistant Principal.
