TOMBALL – Tomball ISD School Board Members and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora took part in Board Walks, a newly designed opportunity that enabled this group to experience school life on a Tomball ISD campus.
“As a Destination District, we strive to be actively engaged on our campuses and Board Walks allowed our School Board members to observe the enhanced academic curriculum as well as the culture that is being reinforced district-wide,” Salazar-Zamora said. “Our schools represent much more than just a successful academic environment as we educate the whole child. We are very fortunate in Tomball ISD to have a supportive and dedicated School Board that allows us to grow and develop as educators and I’m happy they were able to see it first hand in our classrooms.”
The School Board opened its Board Walks tour on Friday, Oct. 19 when they visited Creekside Park Junior High, Timber Creek Elementary, Tomball Elementary and Tomball High School.
The campus tours wrapped up on Friday, Oct. 26 when three more School Board members spent the day visiting Oakcrest Intermediate, Wildwood Elementary, Willow Wood Junior High and Tomball Memorial High School.
Each campus had the opportunity to showcase their success and provide knowledgeable feedback on why Tomball ISD continues to elevate its educational standards. During Board Walks, each Board Member took part in lessons and collaborated with students and teachers throughout the day.
“I have been amazed at the multiple mediums used to teach. I’m super impressed with the way our educators are using the tools that we, as Board Members, approve. To be able to see those implemented in the classroom, has been truly incredible,” Lee McLeod, Tomball ISD School Board Trustee.
