About the Teacher
My name is Kimm Carter Montgomery. The 2021-22 school year will be my thirty-seventh year in Tomball ISD. I am proud to be a Tomball ISD teacher! We are a unique community. I feel that our district is dedicated to the success of all students and everyone I know is committed to doing what is best for kids.
I began in Tomball ISD with student teaching. I student taught for English III AP and French. I was hired before my student teaching ended and began working at Tomball High in the fall of 1985. I taught English II AP and French I. I also coached cheerleading for many years. I taught all the levels of English and French during my time at Tomball High School.
I moved to our DAEP 20 years ago. I began teaching all of the subjects, English, History, Science and Math. Thankfully, we hired some more staff to share the duties! I am now working with the Success Academy students and for the DAEP students, I am responsible for Foreign Languages.
I enjoy staying abreast of the new technologies and professional staff development opportunities that TISD offers. We have great Technology and Curriculum teams that really assist me - with all of these class preparations, it's crucial that I be on the top of my game every day! I know our district is growing each school year and I enjoy meeting our new staff and getting to work with a variety of people to best help your student at Connections Academy.
I have received eight A+ Teacher of the Year awards at various points in my career. I have also earned the Tomball Rotary Lifetime Educator Achievement award in 2017. In August of 2017, I was honored at the Tomball Chamber of Commerce as teacher of the month. I am deeply honored to receive these awards and I believe the people I work with deserve much of the credit also. I have also become a Master Teacher. Currently, I am helping out with Schoology training for our staff.
I have a husband, who works as the Network Administrator for TISD and a son that recently graduated from Tomball High School. I have also lived many places. I went to school and grew up in London, England. I have lived in other countries and enjoy exploring cultures and histories. My other favorite activity is reading!
