Hi there! My name is Samantha Wilson. Some of you may know me as Miss Miller from before I was married in the summer of 2018. This is my first year as the GT specialist at Wildwood! Previously, I taught first, second, and fourth grade. I was privileged enough to earn A+ teacher at Wildwood in 2016. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2013. I am so lucky to have studied at Sam Houston with some of the most experienced professors in the field.  Upon graduation I was certified to teach ESL and GT students. Recently, I reenrolled at Sam Houston in an online reading masters program with a reading specialist certification. I'm almost finished and plan to graduate with my Masters of Education in Reading/Language Arts in May of 2021. 

I have always loved children and held jobs that involved that passion. I have been a nanny, a tutor, a dance teacher, and preschool teacher. When I'm not teaching I enjoy traveling, watching sports and movies, listening to music, and spending time with my husband, family, and friends. 

On my endeavor, I have learned so much about schools, students, and myself. I hope to be the best teacher I can possibly be. My mission in life is to make a difference in a child's life, maybe one day it will be your child.

Kindergarten Scores

All Kindergarten GT scores have gone home. F2F students received them in their Wednesday folder. TVS students received them via email from samanthawilson@tomballisd.net
Students who did not receive scores did not qualify for testing based on our screener. If you did not receive your scores or would like further information, feel free to reach out. I'm happy to chat with you more about your student anytime. Thanks! 

1st-4th GT Nominations due March 5th

Hi Wildwood Families!

It's that time of year again! We are preparing for Spring GT Nominations and I wanted to give you some things to think about as you consider referring your 1st-4th grade student.

Gifted students have specific characteristics. Please read the profiles of a High Achiever, Gifted, and Creative student and notice the differences between their characteristics.  Use these characteristics to guide you in your nomination process. 

If your students meet most of these characteristics, then please complete a GT Student Referral form. Nominations are due no later than, Friday March 5th. 

If you have any questions, please ask.  I am happy to help.

TISD GT Kinder Testing Letter

The State of Texas mandates that all kindergarten children be screened to determine the need for gifted and talented services. ​Please see the linked letter below from Tomball ISD in regards to our process to screen all kindergarten students.
