Hey there! If you are looking for Mrs. Stolte, then you are in the right place.
I grew up in Tomball, graduating from Tomball High School in 1997. From early on in my school years, I aimed to please when it came to my teachers. I loved to grade papers, run errands for them, and pretend I was the teacher! I am a little embarrassed to say I probably would have sat with them at recess, if I had been allowed. When I was in eighth grade, one of my teachers told me, "when you become a teacher, look me up and I will hire you." I doubt he remembers telling me that, but I sure have smiled at that memory many times over the years. I have very fond memories of many of my teachers.
I moved to Austin in July 1997, later graduating from Concordia University. I love to take pictures, travel, read books, get lost in Target and Hobby Lobby, and to spend time with my precious children. I taught fourth grade in Hutto before becoming a mom. I then had the incredible pleasure to be a stay-at-home mom for five and half years, before returning to the classroom to teach 2nd grade for 5 years, and now 1st grade.
I have five incredible blessings (children) - Adeline, also known as Addie, is a sixth grader this year. She is very excited about returning to school. Addie loves reading and writing, dancing, singing and swimming. Her most favorite thing to do is ride horses; she is an exceptional BARREL RACER! :)
Emma is my second daughter. She is equally excited to be returning to school for fifth grade! She enjoys playing soccer, dancing and singing. Emma also loves, loves, loves babies and being a "momma" to any baby or child that will indulge her. Her bed is overflowing with baby dolls, but she still asks for a new one every time she walks through the doors of Target!
Brennan is my "baby." He is less than excited to be in fourth grade - he would rather be outside playing basketball and football. He also takes great pride in filling any silent, peaceful moment with a spontaneous burst of noise or song. Unfortunately, I do believe that he has a future as the class clown. I apologize in advance to all his future teachers.
Micah (17) and Noah (15) are my bonus sons. They are both very intelligent young men, with a future in leadership. The "big boys" enjoy playing basketball, playing games, swimming, riding bikes, and playing with the "little kids." Micah is a 12th grader, with his eyes set on all-things coding and engineering. He knows more about technology and programs than I could ever imagine knowing. Noah is a 10th grader with hopes of joining the school basketball team. He is an exceptional artist!
I am super excited about starting another year of teaching here at Lakewood. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your families, as we grow our LAKEWOOD FAMILY! You are always welcome in our classroom - our home, is your home!
