Welcome Students and Parents,          
I am excited to start the new school year with you.  This is my fifth year in Tomball ISD teaching eighth grade U.S. History. I have three years of experience in Spring ISD teaching reading, writing, and social studies to grades five, six, and seven; and another teaching kindergarten at Primrose Schools. 
 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas A & M University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. My certifications include: English/Language Arts/Social Studies 4-8, History 8-12, English as a Second Language Early Childhood-12, Gifted and Talented, and Generalist Early Childhood-12. 
E-Mail is my preferred form of communication (alisongraham@tomballisd.net), but I can also be reached at (281)357-3000ext4433.  My conference time is fifth period (11:21-12:10).
