Hello! My name is Emily Gross and I am so thrilled to be at Fort Sam Houston Elementary! As a Reading Teacher, I will collaborate with teachers, parents and students to provide additional literacy instruction. Our goal is to ensure all young learners have a strong foundation by delivering additional support when needed. I hope to help foster a love of reading and lifelong discovery!
Over my six years in education, I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st Grade. I have also worked as an interventionist for both math and reading. I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from The University of Texas at Austin. I received my Masters in Education from the University of Houston with a focus on Language Arts, Literature and Reading. Additionally, I am a certified Reading Specialist.
I am originally from Dripping Springs, but I just moved to this area from Houston. I enjoy eating yummy food, being active and playing sports as well as getting cozy with a book! I have a big, loving family and a wonderful life partner. I feel honored to join the Fort Sam Houston community and I look forward to a fabulous year!
