About The Teacher

My name is Beth Prince.  I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten this year!!  I received my Bachelor of Science in elementary education from Carson-Newman University.  I taught first grade for five years, then stayed at home with my children when they were young.  I returned to teaching as a  substitute for Willow Creek. This is now my 15th year to teach Kindergarten at Willow Creek Elementary.
My husband, Randy, and I have four children.  Our oldest daughter works full time, while pursuing a Culinary degree at LeNotre Culinary Institute. Our oldest son is a geologist working out in west Texas. Our other son is a financial advisor working for AXA. Our youngest daughter is in PT school at Ut Southwestern in Dallas.

 We have lived here for over 18 years.  We love Tomball schools and the Tomball area!

Mission For The Class

My mission for the class is for each child grow in many aspects of their life. I want them to be challenged to his/her fullest.  I believe college begins in Kindergarten!!

I want each child to feel loved and respected within our class and to show the same to others.  In all of this, we want to have fun!
