Welcome to Gifted and Talented Education at Northpointe Intermediate School. Do you have questions about Gifted Education and how to qualify? Please email me at
I look forward to working with your Gifted and Talented students this year.
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 second 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, just graduated Valedictorian from the University of Houston College of Architecture and has begun his career at Gensler Houston architectural firm. Our youngest son, Austin, is a junior this year at the University of Houston and is majoring 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 recently decided that an app is needed to fully enjoy the game experience and is currently designing one.
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 definately 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 2017-2018 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  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.




GT Spring Testing will be here soon!


Flyers for GT Spring testing will be going home in Wednesday folders on February 28. This testing is for students who have not been identified as GT. Current GT students do not need to be tested again. Please contact me if you need more information.
