My name is Tiffany Gonzales and I can’t wait to get to know you and your child! I will be teaching your child Language Arts and Social Studies. My partner teacher, Ms. Rebekah Collins, will teach them Math and Science. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Texas A&M University, College Station...WHOOP! I am certified to teach Early Childhood Education, Gifted and Talented, and English as a Second Language learners. I came to Tomball I.S.D. in 2010, after spending the first five years of my teaching career in Spring I.S.D. I taught at Creekside Forest Elementary for four years, and this is my fourth year at Willow Creek.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brandon, our daughter, Spree, and our son, Ace; reading, CrossFitting, and, watching football, especially the Aggies and Texans!! I also teach a CrossFit Boot Camp in the mornings at 5:00am! I come from a large family. I am the youngest of five children! All of my family lives in and around Houston, so I also spend as much time with them as possible. I truly love teaching, and I am really looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year!

Communication between home and school is the first step in making this year a successful one. I encourage you to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, or just ideas of ways that I can make your child’s third grade year a remarkable one. I strive for every student to feel comfortable, engaged, and important in my classroom. I will keep you updated on your child’s progress regularly, but feel free to contact me at any time to discuss this with me. I am very honored to have your child in my class this year, and I am looking
forward to a year filled with fun, learning, and success stories!

Week of September 18, 2017

Hi Parents!
 
I hope your week has gotten off to a great start!
 
Don't forget, tonight is Marco's Pizza Night!
 
Also, next Thursday is Open House for grades 3 and 4. It starts in the cafeteria at 5:30pm.
 
We will have our second spelling test this Friday. Please help your child study the word and the rule throughout the week.
 
A few reminders: please help your kiddos to bring just one healthy snack each day. Also, checking pens are part of their school supplies. Some kiddos have already lost theirs.
 
This week in class: In reading, we are focusing on responding to reading. Students should be able to read or listen to a story and respond in writing. The response can be a connection they made with the text, a lesson they learned, or any other insight they have into the story; such as advice for a character. In writing, we are working on personal narratives. Students should be able to write about a small moment from their lives using a clear beginning, middle, and end. In Social Studies, we are learning all about and celebrating Freedom Week. We will take a test over these lessons on Friday. But, the test will be open note. All of the needed information for the test will be in their notebooks. If your child would like to bring their notebooks home to study, that is fine...but please be sure they bring it back to school every day. We use our notebooks daily in class! 
 
Have a wonderful week! Gig 'em Aggies and Go Texans!!

Reminders!

Happy Friday!
 
We had an awesome first FIVE DAY week together!!
 
Just a few notes and reminders for you:
 
-Students received new spelling words today. They should have copied them in their planners. They also received their new spelling homework sheets. Remember, those are optional, BUT---I told the kids that if they are putting up a fight at home when you say they have to study, optional will turn to mandatory!! Most kiddos chose to still turn the homework in this week and they were rewarded for that! 
 
-Spelling test will be Friday.
 
-Students need to bring their homework folders and planners to school EVERY day. Many students are forgetting those at home.
 
-Please return the Wednesday folders AND conduct cards each Thursday. We received many empty folders this week.
 
Have a GREAT weekend!!! It's off to a super start with a Texans' win last night. Now the Aggies have to come through, too!
 
-Mrs. Gonzales

Spelling Tests Start Next Week!

Parents, please see the attached document. It is also coming home with your child in their homework folder today. Please note that I am trying a new concept in my class this year. The spelling homework is optional. Yes, you read that correctly! I find that students that are going to study for their tests each week, will study regardless of whether or not they have to turn something in to prove so! If students complete the spelling homework, please send it in. I told them that they never know when they will be rewarded for doing so! ;-)

Updates

Happy Tuesday!
 
It was so great to see the kiddos again! We sure missed them.
 
Please send in notebook covers as soon as they are done. I have some awesome parent volunteers that are taping them on as soon as they come in!
 
As of this morning, the board in front of the school still said something about an Open House tomorrow night. Please note that has been postponed. We have not been given the new dates, but I will update you as soon as I know them!
 
Also, if you haven't already, please send in headphones with your students. Please place them in a plastic bag labeled with your child's name and their homeroom teacher's name!
 
I will send information as I receive it about all changes.
 
Have a great day!

Welcome Back!!

Hi Parents!
 
Wow! What an awesome start to the school year!! I am loving getting to know your kiddos. They are amazing! Also, if you have received this e-mail, that means you correctly signed up for my Edlio page! Thank you and good job!!!
 
Today, you will see the first Wednesday folder come home. We still do not have conduct sheets, as administration is finalizing some things on their end. Hopefully next week you will see those.
 
You WILL see the first homework of the year, though! It's an easy one. Don't worry ;-) Students are going to decorate their math, reading, and writing Interactive Notebook (INB) covers. The math cover is labeled, but please have the students add the words "Reading" and "Writing" to their other two covers. Also, please make sure their names are clearly visible on the front of all 3 covers. Those are not due until September 1st, but you can send them in as soon as they are done so that we can start covering notebooks. The notebook covers and directions should be in your child's Wednesday folder today!
 
Speaking of covering notebooks...if you can donate clear packing tape or your time to tape those covers on, we would GREATLY appreciate it!!! We can send books home with the kiddos or set you up in the workroom to work here, whichever is easiest for you! Please let me know if you can help with either!
 
Have a great rest of your week!
Mrs. Gonzales
