Read what Dr. Paloma Moreno had to say: 

What made you interested in this leadership role?
“As an emergent bilingual student myself, I have always been passionate about serving in a role that supports language acquisition and celebrates and promotes multilingualism. I was interested in this role as it provided the opportunity to serve in a leadership position in a district that prioritizes developing language through an additive model that retains and develops a first language which I believe to be important to provide students with access to their culture and personal identity. I love being part of a team that provides students across Tomball ISD access to languages that they can leverage past their K-12 journeys and take with them well past their time with us. My favorite part of all of the roles I have served in has been supporting the design of instruction, especially the balance of focusing on high quality content instruction and language development. A crucial part of this role involves the instructional piece that I love and I’m excited to get to collaborate with teachers and staff all around the district to continue to provide all of our students access to rigorous instruction while developing multilingual abilities.”  

What keeps you in Tomball ISD?
“Tomball ISD has been home for the past 13 years. In this time, I have been able to see how Team Tomball prioritizes students through personalized instruction, targeted intervention, and matches high expectations with high levels of support. I have been able to collaborate with amazing teachers, staff, and leaders across the district who exemplify what makes Tomball ISD great. I am excited for the opportunity to continue to serve in the district and community that have become home and push forward in the work that makes TISD the destination for excellence in all aspects, including multilingual programming and development.”

What does the future hold in the Multilingual Department under your leadership?
“Under my leadership, the Multilingual Department will continue to thrive and evolve to meet the diverse linguistic needs of our district and community. Students and families can be assured that they can expect the same high quality bilingual and ESL programming that focuses on providing the resources and support students need to be successful and rigorous and engaging LOTE programming. This work includes the continued collaboration across departments and campuses to support high quality teaching and learning. Overall, my vision for the future of the Multilingual Department is one of continued excellence, innovation, and high levels of support where teachers and staff are prepared and empowered to serve students throughout their language development journey in Tomball ISD.”
