Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Tessa Ellis
Welcome to my web page! I am so excited to introduce myself to you. For starters, my name is Tessa Ellis and I will be teaching 7th grade reading and writing this year. I was born and raised in Katy, Texas. Growing up I enjoyed playing volleyball, tennis, and singing in choir. My mother was a teacher so I knew from a very young age that I wanted to follow in her footsteps and help to make a difference in the lives of students. I chose to attend Sam Houston State University because I knew they had one of the best education programs for future teachers. I am so happy to have been a student at Sam because now I have the fabulous opportunity to teach you! I have two dogs named Ally and Buster-- who have BIG personalities and always keep me busy (you'll hear plenty of stories about their shenanigans). In my free time, I enjoy reading mystery novels and watching comedies (I love a good laugh)! I also love being outdoors when the weather is nice and enjoy baking treats for my friends and family! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and getting to know you. I know we will have a fabulous year together!
