Student Teacher

During this semester our grade level will have a student teacher assisting and working with our students. Here is a little bit about her!


Hi Parents! My name is Brianna Espinosa and I am a University of Houston- Downtown student studying to be an Educator. I am a student teacher at Whispering Pines Elementary and I am so lucky to be mentoring under Ms. Svoboda! I attended Humble ISD schools all my life, I went to Humble Elementary, Humble Middle School, and I graduated Atascocita High School in 2017. I worked as an AVID tutor for Humble ISD at the middle and high schools prior to student teaching. I am graduating in May 2022 with a Bachelors of Education in EC-6 with ESL supplemental. I look forward to spending the rest of the school year with your 5th grade children!
