About Mrs. Christian: I am now entering my 9th year in teaching and my 4th year teaching in Tomball ISD. I am a product of Tomball ISD education, I attended Tomball schools for 1st through 12th grade. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2007 majoring in Academic Studies and Minoring in Reading Language Arts. I am a "boy mom", I have 2 step sons named Carson and Caiden and a son, Cooper. My husband is a pilot for Delta Airlines, so we all love to travel. I'm really looking forward to another wonderful year at TCES!
