Howdy! I graduated from Texas A&M University in December 2014. WHOOP! I grew up in Tomball and graduated from Tomball High School. I can't wait to share my personal love and pride of Tomball with my students (as well as the Aggies!). I have an amazing husband and two adorable dogs, Hurley and Reba. I am passionate about teaching children and have always had a passion for math. This is my 3rd year at Timber Creek Elementary.  I taught 3rd grade my first year and this will be my second year teaching 4th grade.  I can't wait to see what this year has in store for all of us!

Extra Clothes for Dash and Bash!

In order to keep our classrooms clean after the run, we are asking parents to send their child to school with a change of clothes on Friday.  Please bring change of clothes in a grocery sack so that the dirty clothes can be placed in the sack.  They can bring a towel if they want too in case it rains and need to clean off. 

Wish List item--- Expo Markers! :)

Hello Parents!

***Help Support our Dash and Bash Silent Auction for 4th Grade***

ATTENTION 4th GRADE PARENTS

Our annual Silent Auction at Dash & Bash is approaching!  Our silent auction is the single event each year that raises the most money for our school!  The school uses this money for software licenses, technology, campus security equipment, books, educational resources & equipment, supplies for teachers, and more! 

Each year, each grade level chooses a theme and we ask families to donate items or money related to that theme.  We combine it all to create a silent auction "basket" that is then auctioned off to raise money for the school.  This year, 4th grade has chosen a CAMPING theme.   Donations are optional.  We request that parents please sign up to donate one or more items on our 4th grade Signup Genius list and send it to school with your children by Friday, March 9 (before spring break).  That will give our room moms time to combine, purchase remaining items, package, and advertise our basket.  For any questions please contact your room mom or Stephanie Piepho (Silent Auction Chairperson) at tcespto.fundraising@gmail.com

4th grade music program Reminder!

Good Morning 4th Grade Parents!

I just wanted to send out a reminder for your child's upcoming Music Program, “An American Dream." I have ALL of their program songs listed on my Edlio site so they can practice at home. I am doing a competition between the classes to see which class can get it memorized first. All of the songs have the words and the music files to help them out. Here is the link so that they can practice:
