Hi there! My name is Samantha Miller. This is my first year teaching 4th grade at Wildwood! Previously, I worked at Wildwood teaching 2nd grade and Willow Creek Elementary teaching first grade. I was lucky enough to earn A+ teacher in 2016 at Wildwood. 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 2018.

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 fiance, 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.

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!!

78th Day of School

"Today in Science we learned about weathering and how things can break down rocks. In Math we learned how to do fractions on a number line."-10

75th Day of School

Welcome Back!! 

I hope everyone had a relaxing break because we are hitting the ground running with a very busy week. Below are a few important things happening this week.

Today (1/10/18): Wednesday folders will not be coming home because there's no work to send home and no conduct to report. Your students will have a few flyers. Please help them remember to give them to you =)

Tomorrow (1/11/18): Texas Tea- In Ms. Shank's room the students have been practicing their "script" that they prepared before the break and will be writing it on index card(s) in case they need them. Your child may wear their costume to school or change at school in the morning. They should bring the button they made at home (specifications and directions are on the lime green paper that came home before the break). Parents are able to visit the cafeteria from 9:30-10 am to see the Wax Museum. Come in the front doors and get a TX Tea sticker to wear for admission. After the wax museum students will return to our pod at 10 am for snacks while parents will exit the building.

Spirit Night at Freebirds- Don't worry about cooking-support our school!

Friday (1/12/18): Fall Fundraiser Rewards- If your student qualified for any of the below rewards you will receive a separate email from me and a flyer will come home with them today (Wednesday).

  1. Mad Science Party- Students who sold 5 or more items will attend the party from 10-10:45.
  2. Video Game Party- Students who sold 17 or more items will attend the video game party from 3-3:30.

All of this and learning? I know I will be exhausted on Friday afternoon, as I'm sure your kids will be too. It'll be nice to have a day off already on Monday, 1/15/18! As always thanks for supporting us with your child's education. If you have any questions we're an email or phone call away =)
