My name is Molly Schwarze and I am the ESL specialist at Creekside Forest Elementary. This is my ninth year at Tomball ISD. I am very excited to support your child in their journey with English learning and academic success!

Even though it is my ninth year at Creekside, it is my twelfth year in education. I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University where I received my bachelor's degree in Education. I am EC-6, ESL, and GT certified. As a life-long learner, I have many individual goals still to reach in education.

I have a 9th grade son, Mack, who attended Creekside for a few years and is now a sophomore at Tomball High School! We are looking forward to a successful freshman year both academically and in his sports. On the weekends, we enjoy hiking, fishing (him, not me :) ), playing baseball (lots of it), and reading.

Please let me know how I can support your child feel successful and celebrated at Creekside Forest Elementary.


First Week of November

Hello 3rd Grade Families!
I hope you all have a fun weekend planned ahead. For those of you who celebrate, Happy Halloween! 
The rigor in 3rd grade has been turned up! Last week we hit word problems. These can be tricky. I would suggest making up addition and subtraction word problems as a family and solving them. Visuals are a huge help when solving word problems. There is also some suggestions in the Smore on resources! 
Don't forget to study your multiplication facts! This unit will be coming up after Thanksgiving break.
A reminder that Tuesday is a student holiday and a work day for staff. 
Thanks for the teamwork!

Let me know if you have any questions. Hope you have a great week.
