WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE
Dear 1st Grade Parents and Students,
It is with great pleasure that I will be working with you all this school year !
My name is Kimberly DeBose, and the 2016-2017 school year marks my 15th year of teaching.
Prior to teaching in Tomball ISD, I taught in Conroe and Katy ISD. I love having the honor of helping students broaden their passion of learning concepts in all subject areas in addition to developing great friendships with their peers. Each year, my students look forward to a classroom environment where they have an opportunity to collaborate, explore, and participate in engaging activities with their classmates and friends.
I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX with Honors in 2002 with a Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies and a specialization in Reading. I have teaching certifications including: Elementary Self Contained for grades 1-8, Elementary Reading for Grades 1-8 and English as a Second Language for Early Childhood through 4th grade. I also have extensive training for Gifted and Talented learners.
I am a native Houstonian, and I have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. I have 2 beautiful children, ages 6 and 2. As a family, we love to spend time together and we also enjoy traveling. Some of my personal hobbies and interests include: cooking, shopping, reading, and traveling.
I am excited about the school year ! Family support and involvement are incredibly important and welcome. Please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
I would love your input as to what you value the most and feel is the most essential part of a comprehensive counseling program. If you could respond to the survey below, that would be wonderful in helping me tailor the program to meet the needs of our students here at CFES!
Ms. Dean, Counselor
