My name is Lisa Alter. This is my sixth year at NIS in Tomball ISD and I absolutely love it here! I have taught for 16 years, eleven of those in middle school Math: two in Fort Bend ISD, two in Colorado Springs, CO, and seven in Humble ISD at an MYP/IB campus. I graduated from the University of Houston - Clear Lake with a BA in  Communication. Prior to teaching, I worked in the oil & gas industry and lived in the Caribbean where I worked as an underwater photographer. I found I was always teaching others, so I decided to go back to school for my teaching certificate. I am truly blessed  that I have found my calling in life!
 
I have been married to my wonderful husband for nineteen years and we have a  14-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son. We moved to Tomball a several years ago and we love it here! If we are not watching our son play soccer or daughter performing in band, we spend time together as a family.
 
I have high expectations for my students. I want my students to be respectful, come to class prepared, take ownership of  heir learning and do their BEST!
 
                                             NOTHING LESS THAN YOUR HIGHEST AND BEST!

Email Sent Home Regarding Remote Learning

Subject: NIS 6th grade MATH Remote Learning
Date: Friday, March 20, 2020
 
Hello Parents,
 
I hope you all are doing well with all of the changes that have been taking place recently in our society. I wanted to let you know that we will begin our Remote Learning on Monday, March 23rd. I will continue using our same Math Google Classroom to post videos, assignments, and other resources as well as to communicate with your child. Make sure to have your child check their Google Classroom each Monday. This is when I will post weekly assignments. I will continue to update my Edlio page each week.
 
I have created a quick technology survey for students to complete. This will help me see who has access to various types of technology from home and will help in future planning. This will be posted in Google Classroom on Monday, March 23rd and must be completed no later than Wednesday, March 25th. **Be sure your child is logged into their Tomball ISD Google account** If your child does not have access to a computer/device or internet, please let me know so I can pass this information on to our district leaders. 
 
I will have office hours to assist your child on Mondays from 2:00-2:30pm and & Wednesdays from 11:00-11:30am.  Students can post questions in Google Classroom for feedback. Parents can reach out to me with any math related questions via email. 
 
This is certainly going to be a new experience for all of us and we will learn as we go. I will make sure I do everything I can to support your child through this time. 
 
You are all in my thoughts and I miss my students. I look forward to returning to normal life, but until then, stay healthy and safe.
 
Thank you for your patience and support,
