Hi there! My name is Samantha Wilson. Some of you may know me as Miss Miller. I got married this summer and am thrilled to start a new school year with a new name. This is my second year teaching fourth grade at Wildwood! Previously, I worked at Wildwood teaching second grade and Willow Creek Elementary teaching first 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 2019. 

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.

Fact Test x7,9

Here is your weekly practice for our Fast Fact Quiz that we will have on Friday. The best way to practice at home is to set a timer for 2 minutes and see how many you can fill out. Remember, these weekly quizzes all average to make half of a major grade for the 2nd 9 weeks. 

Fact Test x10,5,2,1,0

Starting this Friday your child will have their first timed fact test from the district.  They received a copy Monday in class to help them study at home, but you can also print off this page for extra practice. Let me know if you have any questions.
We would love to see you at our new and improved Trunk or Treat! Your favorite 4th grade teachers will be there dressed up and passing out treats.

Farewell

Good Morning Parents! I wanted to send one last farewell before I remove you from my "class". Good luck in 5th grade! I'd love to hear about your students successes as they grow and learn. I miss them dearly!

Summer Ideas

Here is a list of Houston area summer camps if you are interested. Some are free and most have coupon codes for a percentage off! Great way to keep our kids busy and learning over the summer!

In addition, I told them to keep in touch via email- through the summer and beyond! I love to hear what is new in their lives. They all have emails set up through the district that they can use. I promised them I would respond and possibly even send a few wedding pictures. =) They can send it to my school email. samanthamiller@tomballisd.net

Have a relaxing summer! I will miss you all. Big hugs!!

Dear Parents,

The 4th grade team wanted to send you a few reminders as the year comes to an end.

·         Tuesday, May 29- Send a raw egg with your student to school on Tuesday for our egg drop. Maybe put it in a plastic cup with a paper towel (or something like that) to keep it safe on the trip to school. We don’t want any broken eggs on the bus.

·         Wednesday, May 30- Ice Cream Party is from 1:35-2:20.

·         Thursday, May 31- Half Day/Last Day- Please remember whether you elected to send a lunch with your student or have them buy a sack lunch and stick with what you put on the form previously. This will help our cafeteria run smoothly.

In addition, we want to let you know how to access your student STAAR scores when they are released on June 13, 2018.

·         1. Go to http://www.TexasAssessment.com/students

·         2. To access the scores you will need your child’s date of birth and unique access code.

·         3. There are three places you can locate your child’s unique access code.

o   On www.TexasAssessment.com  you can select “Find My Unique Student Access Code”.  You will need to input your student’s first name, SSN or S-number, and birth date.

o   On the bottom of your child’s previous STAAR Confidential Student Report.

o   On your child’s Home Access Center page.  Select the Registration tab at the top of the page.  Under Testing Resources you will find your child’s Unique Student Portal Code along with a direct link to the Texas Assessment website.

·         4. For additional information on STAAR please visit: http://tea.texas.gov/student.assessment/parents/.

We look forward to ending this year on a positive note with all of your kiddos and hope this information helps! Have a wonderful summer!!
