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!

End of Year Party!!

Happy LAST Monday of the school year!!!
 
I can't believe it's almost over. Our end of year party is rapidly approaching. Our amazing Room Mom put together a sign up for the things that our class will need for the party. Please sign up if you are able to help out.
 
We will also be signing yearbooks that day (May 30th). If you bought your child a yearbook, please make sure it comes to school that day. If your child does not have a yearbook, you can send them with computer paper, a journal, a shirt that you don't mind other kids signing, anything that you guys want. Please also send a permanent marker!
 
Have a great week and a Happy Memorial Day!

Important Info!!!

Hi Parents!!
 
This Friday (tomorrow) we are surprising (shhhh) the kids by transforming our hallway and doing a whole day rotation to get them excited about doing their best on STAAR. We will also have a surprise visit by Toro of the Houston Texans!!!! Please don't tell the kids, most of our fun comes from seeing their shocked and excited faces that day! If possible, please let them wear their 3rd grade class shirts that day as well.
 
Friday the 11th: STAAR wars rotations (shhh) (wear class shirts)

Monday: Math STAAR (Wear layers... our room can be super cold at times. Students may still bring their own snacks and water from home for before and after the test, but will drink and eat the school provided snacks and water during the test. Please be extra diligent in making sure that all cell phones and smart watches are left at home these days. No lunch visitors.)

Tuesday: Reading STAAR (Same notes as Monday.)

Wednesday: R & R after STAAR - (Students may bring pillows and blankets for a day of resting, relaxing, and celebrating our successes!)

Important Information in Today's Wednesday Folder!

Happy Wednesday!!

Please check your child's Wednesday folder today for a few very important items. One is their progress report. We submitted those grades on Friday. I know I have put in at least one grade since the submission, so always check online for updates and questions! Two, a white envelope! This is a surprise that we do for our students every year. Please open it and read the directions carefully. These are uplifting, inspirational letters that we give to our students the day before the STAAR test. It is very important that each student receives one, so please have them returned by next Tuesday, May 8th. The intention was for the letter to come back sealed in the envelope that I provided for you, but if you are in my homeroom, you will see that I already sealed them! So, just tape it shut when you send it back. Sorry about that! We want the letters to remain a surprise until we pass them out next Friday! Thank you for taking the time to write your letter. We know how busy you are. Please know that these letters truly mean so much to your children. They always cherish the letters.
 
Let me know if you have any questions!

Spelling

Happy Friday!
 
Just a quick note about spelling homework papers. Students will no longer receive the spelling homework papers. We are having a school-wide copy shortage, so spelling papers is one of the things that has to go. Students are still expected to do the homework. They will still copy the words into their planner every Friday. The spelling words will also still be on my website every week. The only change is that they will now do their homework on notebook/printer paper, or print the page directly from my website.
 
Thanks!

**Class Picture Retake--Gonzales' Homeroom ONLY**

Hi Parents!
 
Due to a mistake in my homeroom's class picture, it will need to be retaken. We will retake on Tuesday, April 3rd at 9:00am. This is for class pictures only, not individuals.  If you ordered a class picture, you will receive it when the new one comes in. I am sorry for the delay!

Week of March 26, 2018

Happy Monday!
 
I will try to be short in all I have to tell you so that you are not reading all night!
 
-Wax Museum slips were due on Friday. You received an individual e-mail if your child is still missing theirs.
 
-Report cards come home on Wednesday. Those grades were submitted way back on March 9th, so please refer to your child's online grade book for questions (or to get an early peek at their report card grades!).
 
-Reading homework is due Thursday. This is mandatory. Please help your child get it completed and brought back to school.
 
-This week's spelling test is on Thursday due to Good Friday.
 
-No school Friday!
 
-Wax Museum posters are due by Monday, 4/2. In-class presentations will take place on Monday. Costumes not required.
 
-Wax Museum hallway presentations will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, 4/4 and 4/5. Those are the days your child needs to bring their costumes.
 
-Social Studies notebooks, where your child has been taking their research notes, can come home after they are graded. That means, if your child does not finish their research by Thursday, they may not have their notebook to use over the weekend. But, that is not a problem. They can use the "5 Facts to Remember" sheet that I sent home, as well as the internet and any books they have at home. I have also told them that they can copy any notes they need onto notebook paper to take home.
 
I think that is all! Please let me know if you have any questions!
 
Have a great week and very Happy Easter!

Mandatory Homework Starts Today and Benchmark is Coming!

Happy Thursday!
 
You will start to see reading passages every Thursday from now on. The students are to complete them, showing all of their strategies (underlining clues and answers in the story, showing that they narrowed down the answer choices, and any thoughts they need to jot), and return them by the following Thursday. Any student that does not have completed homework by Thursday will have to complete that during recess that day since we will check it in class together the following day.
 
Also, the reading benchmark will be next Tuesday, February 27th. All third graders will take the test in their homeroom classes. You don't need to do anything to prepare your child except make sure they get a good night's rest on Monday, eat a good breakfast on Tuesday, and remind them NOT to be nervous, but to do their best!!!
 
Progress reports will come home next Wednesday. Be sure to check your child's online grade book if you have any questions!
 
Have a great weekend!!
