Welcome Coogs!

I am Mrs. Istre, your 7th grade ELA teacher.  I hope you've all had a great summer vacation and are as excited as I am to get the school year rolling. Although it is only my second year of teaching in Tomball, it will be my eleventh year teaching ELA in Texas. 

It is my mission for you to become better decision-makers in the real world as well as in the classroom.  I want you to feel the freedom to create, think, explore and discover new possibilities in a safe environment. It is my hope that after being in my class this year, you will take responsibility for your own learning and carry that sense of ownership with you to the next level.  

Parents, I have provided you with the scope and sequence of the first semester. Should you need to contact me via phone or in person, my conference period is listed below.

Conference Period:  3rd Period / 9:10-9:55
I would like to encourage all parents and students to subscribe to my webpage as I will be sharing information regarding important updates and reminders about tests, portfolio pieces and project deadlines. Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns.
Let's have an awesome year!
Mrs. Istre
