Dear Parents of GT Students,
 
It is an honor to be the GT Specialist at Northpointe Intermediate! There is no better place to teach.
A little about me: I have taught in Leander ISD, Borger ISD, and La Porte ISD. This is my fourth year at Northpointe, and I couldn't be happier. I am married to the love of my life, and we have two sons. Both of our sons were identified as Gifted and Talented in Clear Creek ISD. We have been doing GT for a long time at our house! Our oldest son, Travis, graduated Valedictorian from the University of Houston College of Architecture and works at Gensler Houston architectural firm. Our youngest son, Austin, graduated from the University of Houston with a major in Digital Media. He is in the process of publishing his first book, which is a manual for a table top game system he has created. He is currently designing an app to help enjoy the gaming experience.
My husband and I grew up in Austin and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. I have my Bachelor of Science in Education and my Masters in Education. In addition to being a certified Texas GT Specialist, I am a certified Texas Reading Specialist, and a certified Texas ESL Specialist. I love to read and allow my GT Students full access to my classroom library. I am definitely a book nerd! I look forward to another wonderful year at NIS!

Testing for students NEW to TISD

For anyone who recently enrolled at Northpointe  Intermediate for the 2019-2020 school year from out of district....If your child was in the gifted program at their prior school, please contact me to review your child's testing information from your prior school.  If further testing is needed, I will contact you. 

To make testing requests, please email Sheri Mohle  at   sherimohle@tomballisd.net  ASAP.

 

Please note that if your child has testing data from a prior school district, we will assess the data, but it may be necessary for us to complete testing in TISD in order to follow TISD GT qualification guidelines.
