Staffing for Next Year

We are excited to welcome the following in-district transfers to Robison next year. We are still interviewing and will keep you posted.

In addition to these announcements last week:

Michelle Nixon, from Yeager, will be joining us to teach Pre-K.

Allison Hamling, from Hamilton, and Katie Noble, from Hoover, will be joining us to teach PPCD.

Michelle Vicary, from Pope, and Kellie Vozar, from Tipps, will be joining us to teach 4th-grade reading and language arts.

The following teachers have been recommended:

Samantha Gerron, from Emery, will join the fourth-grade team to teach language arts.

Rachael Walker, from Lee, will be our AB teacher.

Lauren Pawlak, from Sheridan, will teach 3rd-grade math and science.

I will also keep you updated with some personal information about our new Robison team members. I've asked them to compile a little information that I can share with you. I'll continue to share as I receive more information.

Michelle Nixon (Pre-K)- I Love to work out, do Zumba, and I am a runner. I would love to host a class after school for Zumba next year if any staff is interested. The most important personal info about me is that I am an overly obnoxious Die Hard Florida Gator and obsessed with my dog Tim Tebow. Professionally, my passion is early childhood and presenting staff development and my greatest accomplishment in the district was writing the pre-k curriculum guide last summer.

Katie Todd Noble (PPCD)-I'm excited to join the PPCD team at A. Robison to kick off my tenth year of education! I previously worked as a Special Education teacher in Austin ISD and in Cy-Fair ISD at Fiest and Hoover. Last summer, I joined the training cadre as a Quantum Learning facilitator for the district. I am married to my husband Ricky, who is also a Cy-Fair teacher, and together, we have a three-year-old son named Ben and two dogs. My favorite color is green and when I'm not working, I enjoy live music, photography, and relaxing with my family.

Allison Hamling (PPCD)-I am so excited to join the Robison Rockets. I can’t wait to meet all of you in August. I will be bringing over 8 years of teaching experience, five of which have been dedicated to PPCD. When I am not busy with school, I love to spend time with my rambunctious 3-year-old daughter and husband.

Michelle Vicary (4th)-My name is Michelle Vicary. I live in Coles Crossing with my husband, Brent, our twin girls, Ashlyn and Taylor, and our dog Maddie Mae. We love Aggie football, good food, and hanging out with our family and friends. I have been an educator for 21 years in CFISD. During this time, I have worked at Matzke Elementary and Pope Elementary. My experience includes 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and administrative positions. I am excited to be joining the Robison family and meeting everyone.

Kellie Vozar (4th)-Hi, my name is Kellie Vozar. I'm so excited to be joining Robison next school year as a 4th grade Reading/LangArts teacher! I am coming from Tipps Elementary, where I have taught 4th grade the past three years. A little bit about me, I have a horse named Koda and a sweet dog named Dixie. In my free time, I love going indoor rock climbing, running, and competing in rodeos. I can't wait to get to know you all, and I'm looking forward to a fantastic school year!

End-of-Year Conferences

If you have not completed your reflections, please do so in the next couple of days (Domain I and Domain IV). These are loaded directly into CFPGS for you to place your comments. If you are "on-cycle", it is expected that you reflect on Domains I and IV. If you are "off-cycle", it is expected that you reflect on Domain IV. Part of Domain IV is completing all of your goal setting and reflections on time. Please be sure that everything in CFPGS is updated. The growth tracker chart should have been updated all year. End-of-year conferences begin this week for some, so we greatly appreciate your attention to completing this information.

CFISD Bond Election

The district is sharing weekly videos and posts on social media to keep the community informed about the upcoming bond election. If you live in CFISD, you are able to vote. Early voting will take place at Juergen's Hall from April 22-30 (7 am to 7 pm, except for Sunday, April 28- 1 to 6 pm).
