 Gifted Department Vision
We strive to meet the intellectual, academic and social emotional needs of
the gifted learner by providing more depth, more complexity and independent
study beyond the regular curriculum. Our program serves students by providing a
relevant and deeper understanding of all the world has to offer. We strive to motivate our students to become lifelong learners and leaders.
 


Hello! I am the GT specialist for Tomball and Rosehill Elementary Schools, and I'm thrilled to be working with you!  I am a lifelong learner and an avid reader, who is eager to challenge each student and pass on my love for learning and problem solving.


I grew up in Baytown, TX, where I participated in Goose Creek ISD's GT and honors programs through 12th grade.  I attended Baylor University for undergraduate work, and Texas Tech for my Masters Degree in science. Originally, before falling in love with teaching, I was a registered dietitian and worked in hospitals and clinics.  I am now starting my 12th year in education!


I have three children 23, 15 and 12, all from Tomball ISD, the best school district around! My step-son graduated from Tomball High School three years ago and is attending Texas 
State. My youngest daughter is in 6th grade at Northpointe, and my other will be a sophomore at Tomball Memorial.  I will be attending all Friday not football games this year, as she is a TMHS Silver Star!


I love animals, and I have a golden retriever named Sassie and a toy poodle named Scarlet.If I wasn't a teacher I would be a veternarian.  My hobbies include reading, singing, swimming and boogy boarding. I enjoy white sandy beaches each summer and would love to live on the beach someday!


I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you.  This is going to be a 
fantastic year!
