Hi there, I am Jennifer Gordon, and this year I am thrilled to embark on a new journey here at Tomball Intermediate.  I began my teaching journey back in 2005 at Spring ISD where I taught for seven years. Then a move brought us to Tomball.  I was blessed to find a position at Rosehill Elementary where I taught 3rd and 4th grade for five years. Working at Tomball Intermediate, where champions are made, will allow me to attend after school activities with my children.  I have a son at Tomball HS and my daughter will attend Tomball Intermediate with me. Texas plays football and Cali is on the year round swim team. I am ecstatic that I will be able to attend their sport functions but even more excited that I can still do what I am passionate about….TEACH!

I can't wait to meet each and everyone of you and begin a new school year together!  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am accessible through email or phone and will get back to you before the end of the day.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a relaxing break!  I know I did, but was glad to be back!  Just a few reminders 
  • Please remember your child will receive homework EVERY Friday and it will be due the following Thursday.  
  • Your child needs to have headphones to use in the classroom.  They do not need to be expensive.  Dollar Tree or 5 and Below
  • We are in desperate need of Expos....most students have not been taking care of them, so I have not had many for a while, but they really do need them. It's easy to get out and work a problem on their desk.  If you cannot donate any, then please make sure your child keeps one in their backpack.
Thank you for your continued support!

I want to express my gratitude for all the wonderful families that I have this year!  I truly love coming to my job and spending time with each and every child!  I wish there was more time throughout the day so I could spend more one-on-one time with each of my students to get to know them better.  I am very thankful to be teaching your children.  Thanks for sharing them with me!
Stay safe over the Thanksgiving week and have a great break!
