Welcome to the Art Studio at TES!

My name is Mrs. Anderson.  I am so excited to be your child's art teacher here at Tomball Elementary School!  I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Academic Studies in 2005.  I began my teaching career in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD as a first grade teacher.  I taught first grade for 7 years and then became an art teacher and taught art for 3 years in Cy-Fair.  I am now onto my 3rd year teaching art here in Tomball ISD!  Tomball is a special place to me because I am a Tomball High School Alumni class of '01.  I am married to my high school sweet heart Jason and we have two beautiful kids, Emery who is 9 and Emmett who is 3.  I also have two long-haired dachshunds, Kyle and Butters.  My students learn very quickly how much I love dachshunds!  I look forward to a creative and amazing year with your child!
