I am a 5th grade science and social teacher, the best combination ever.   Science is full discovery about our world and social studies focuses on the history of our great nation.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I grew up in a small south Texas town being the youngest girl of 11 
children. I earned a BA from Texas A & M University, in College Station.  My husband and I have four children who were educated in wonderful TISD.    Our oldest daughter, Amanda, and her son, Coleman, live here in Tomball with us.  Our son, Garrett, is a graduate of Texas A & M and is now pursuing a degree in nursing. Our third child, Christen, is a sophomore at Lone Star College.  And our youngest, Elissa, is a senior at TMHS.
My mission for my students is to leave OIS with a deeper knowledge of Science and a greater appreciation for our great nation.   I want your child to have a blast learning  Science and Social Studies while growing in confidence and character.  I hope your student knows how awesome he/she is and that it is a joy and honor to have the opportunity to be a part of their road to excellence!
