Welcome to Mrs. Owen's First Grade
Hello and thanks for stopping by! This is a nifty place to get all the latest news about my "Fabulous Firsties"! Teaching is my passion and I'm so thrilled to get to work with the BEST first graders in Tomball!
This is my 24th year of teaching (my 16th in first grade), but my first year in Tomball ISD. I'm excited and blessed to be here at Wildwood Elementary.
I graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Elementary Education. I am also a certified reading specialist, national presenter for STEM education, and GT certified teacher.
When I'm not in the classroom, I'm usually on court. My second passion is tennis. I am a certified tennis pro and I love to play year 'round, all across the greater Houston area!
I'm married to my college sweetheart and we have one fur-baby, Bella, who keeps us constantly entertained. (And she loves the fact that she has an endless supply of tennis balls to play with in the backyard!)
I know this is going to be a wonderful year, filled with laughter, learning, and love. I adore Firsties and am always amazed and delighted by their endless excitement and wonder about the world.
My "door is always open" if you ever have a question or just want to have a conversation about your first grader. I truly believe we are a team in educating your child. Your input and inquiries are always welcome.
Here's to a "Fabulous Firstie" year!
