HI! My name is Christina Shank.
 
My career consists of 19 years of teaching. I had the pleasure of teaching 5th grade self-contained within Houston Independent School District in central Houston. I reached out to Tomball ISD in order to be closer to my 8th grade daughter, as well as lessen my daily commute. I am extremely happy that I have found a home with Wildwood Elementary! I look forward to teaching and sharing my love of reading to my 4th grade students, as well as enhancing their writing skills along the way. 
 

This my 2nd year at WILDWOOD! I am VERY excited to be your child’s teacher! Fourth grade is an amazing year of academic and personal growth for students.  I look forward to getting to know you and your child as we become partners in education. 

 

I graduated from University of Houston - Downtown. I am certified to teach 1st-8th grade.  I am also GT certified.

 

 I have one daughter, like I mentioned above and one dog - Buddy. We currently reside in Cypress.

 

Thank you so much for visiting our class website. I am looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a successful year in fourth grade! :)

Parent Homework

Parents,
Thank you so much for emailing or sending in your typed letters about your children.  I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them.  Any extra information gives Ms. Miller and myself a little more insight into your child's life.  Some of you have asked if it's too late to turn them in.  No, please we still encourage any extra information on your child, so I might send home a reminder letter...Thank you for your continued support. Ms. Shank

New, Parent Orientation Date: Thursday, Sept. 28th

 

This evening is designed for parents to spend some time as a group with their child's teacher, learning about the classroom set up, procedures, communications, curriculum, and everything else you might need to know.

PreK / 2nd / 3rd / *****4th Grade*****
September 28

* Parking will be a challenge, so if you leave close by you might consider walking.

Please join us at 5:15 p.m. in the cafeteria for a general meeting which will include information about WatchDOG Dads, staying connected, fall fundraising, and a brief PTO meeting. Ms. Baker will then send everyone to the teachers’ classrooms.

This night is designed for parents and teachers, so if possible please make other arrangements for your children. Due to the nature of the evening, we will not be able to accommodate individual conferences with the teacher. This is a whole group session with the teacher. 

Other Important Information....

Other Important Info    
1. Homework- please be sure to check your child's planner if you're ever in doubt about what students have for homework. 
 
2. Conduct Cards- This is where we will communicate any conduct marks for the week. If there is nothing written on the week you can assume your student did not get a mark and their conduct has not changed from the previous week. You need to sign or initial the bottom section every week (even if no change is present). Please send the folder, conduct card, and any other papers that were on the "sign and return side" back on Thursday.
 
3. Wednesday folders- The right side are papers that must be signed and returned the next day. This includes the conduct card. The left side is the "stay at home" side. This will include graded papers, PTO/ school info, flyers for sports, etc. Sometimes I put papers that need special attention on the "sign and return side" even if they don't have to be returned the next day. It will always be clear if something needs to be signed and returned. Feel free to let me know if you're ever questioning papers in the Wednesday folder. 
 
4. Snacks and Water- In our classroom we will allow snacks and water. Water bottles must be sealed. Ideally they would be spill proof´ like the Camelbak water bottles. Please make sure snacks are healthy and easily eaten (no utensils, nothing sticky or with residue). Great examples are goldfish, pretzels, cheezits, grapes, etc. Students will decide independently when they would like to eat their snack. A student in our class has a severe allergy to peanuts, tree nuts, and eggs. For this reason we are asking that any snack your student brings to school does not contain any of these products. Thank you for your cooperation in making our environment a safe one for all students.
 
 
 
Thanks for your continued support with your child's education. -Ms. Shank
