Hello parents!
I am so happy to have your student in my class this year! 
This is my first year teaching, and I'm excited to be teaching Kindergarten. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in December of 2016 with my Bachelors degree in interdisciplinary studies. I did my student teaching in Tomball at Timber Creek Elementary. The first seven weeks were in Kindergarten, and the second seven weeks were in Fifth grade. I'm eager to work with you and your child this year, together we will have a successful and great year. 
When I'm not teaching I love spending time with my family, especially my brother who is a Junior at Stephen F. Austin State University (Eat Em Up Kats!!) Our sibling rivalry keeps things fun in our family . When I am not teaching I enjoy crafting, like painting, wood work, and vinyl. I am always available and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your child more as the year progresses. 
It's going to be a great year!
 
Decker Strong, We Can, We Will!
Ms. Ryder

We are having a school wide competition to see which classes from each grade level can have the most days with perfect attendance. If your child is sick, they need to get well at home. If not, please make sure he/she is at school every day. We have lots to learn before we head to first grade! If 100% of the class is here they will earn a small reward from me! However if they are absent, don't forget to send in a note the following day.
